One of the world’s most important philosophers of religion reveals the unity of cosmic Mystery in this distillation of the wisdom of East and West, North and South.
“The intellectual testament of one of the true spiritual giants of our times.”—Catherine Corneille
“Raimon Panikkar is a unique thinker of our age—a philosopher, theologian and mystic; a Christian who has also internalized central moments in both the Hindu and Buddhist traditions. This book, a product of years of deep reflection, is his most accessible and his most moving. I highly recommend it to all philosophers, theologians, and religious thinkers.”—David Tracy
Originally delivered as the prestigious Gifford Lectures and published only months before his death in 2010, Raimon Panikkar’s The Rhythm of Being was immediately acclaimed as a tour de force of profound insights gleaned from a lifetime of connecting the worlds of religion, philosophy, science, and revelation.
Raimon Panikkar, who lived in Spain at the time of his death in 2010, was one of the world’s leading proponents of interreligious dialogue. He taught in Europe, Asia, and North America, including at Harvard University and the University of Santa Barbara. His many books included Christophany: The Fullness of Man (Orbis, 2004).
