Product Description

In this collection of essays, the author shows how the symbolist perspective cultivated by the Sufis offers insights into Islamic art as well as such topics as Russian icons, the Odyssey, chess, and the Sun Dance of the American Indians. The present volume represents a virtually complete collection of Burckhardt’s essays, originally published throughout his life in a variety of German and French journals.
