The Feminine Universe: An Exposition of the Ancient Wisdom from the Primordial Feminine Perspective

The Feminine Universe is the first complete and concise exposition of the Traditionalist or Perennialist philosophy. It is also the first book to present that philosophy in the light of the world's primordial feminine traditions, which predate patriarchy by milennia. It is also the first book to subject the post-modernist developments of late 20th century thought to a thorough Perennialist critique. The breadth of this book's scope is astounding. From ancient patriarchy to the way we see the universe today; from a critique of the 17th-century enlightenment (which governs all modern thought) to the philosophy of Art Deco; from an explanation of how popular Darwinism plays the same role in modern society that creation myths played in older societies to an examination of how Islam and China are likely to develop as the Western Empire declines. This is a book full of surprises and yet each surprise follows logically and inexorably from the same perspective: the perspective that existed before patriarchy was ever thought of, and will exist when it is long forgotten.
