"…recommended to scholars of esotericism." — Religious Studies Review

"…a major achievement, succinctly synthesizing Schuon's work into one volume." — Nova Religio

"Keys to the Beyond provides an unmatched academic analysis of the work of Frithjof Schuon, who in large part remains misunderstood. This is an important work for those who seek a deeper understanding of this complex thinker. This penetrating analysis articulates how religions are necessary forms that correspond to the diverse human beings and collectivities the world over." — Journal of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics

"This book provides unparalleled academic analysis of a complex thinker, whose work remains misunderstood by many. It stands out from other discussions of Schuon's work in that it offers an in-depth examination of the manner in which Schuon incorporates aspects of various religious traditions into a unique philosophy of religion. For the growing body of academics who seek a deeper understanding of Schuon, this will be an essential work." — Joseph E. B. Lumbard, author of Aḥmad al-Ghazālī, Remembrance, and the Metaphysics of Love
