Articles divers

As has been noted by multiple printed and electronic bibliographies, Frithjof Schuon published in the range of 170 articles in various journals. The great majority of these articles were later incorporated by Schuon into his published books. Most articles were incorporated in their entirety as a chapter in a book, at times under a new title and/or with minor modifications; others articles were partially incorporated into one or more book chapters[1] .Using approximate figures, out of 170 articles, only 20 were not incorporated into Schuon’s published books.

In order to dispel persistent confusion regarding this fact, those few unincorporated articles are identified below.

It is important, however, to stress that in the author’s view it is his books that constitute his message, and not his journal articles that he never incorporated into his books, nor his articles as they existed before they were incorporated into his books. The following unincorporated articles may, be of some incidental interest to the reader who is already well versed in Schuon’s essential oeuvre, but they are in no way needed for an appreciation of his message.

NOTES
[1] An example is the article “D l’Alliance” (Études Traditionnelles, June, 1940), which is partially incorporated into the chapters “Christianity and Islam” and “Limits of Religious Expansion” in The Transcendent Unity of Religions, and into the chapter “The Impossible Convergence” in The Transfiguration of Man.
