Booknotes: Against The Modern World

Well, I appreciate the compliment, but all I did was read Mark Sedgwick’s book, Against the Modern World, and keep it handy on the bookshelf next to my computer.
Danielou sounded like a familiar name, I knew he had some kind of tie to Rene Guenon, because I had read Sedgwick. So, all I needed to do was reach for the book and quote the necessary passages.
I recommend all interested persons purchase a copy. It has just been reissued in paperback and if you go to http://www.bookfinder.com, you can do some comparison shopping.
The book is a pleasure to read and even the footnotes are terrific.
You are correct: I am going to get the book, even though I read it quite a while ago (with a library copy).
