Frithjof Schuon is an authentic representative of the Sophia Perennis. In his books, he often described the real nature of man, and his life bears witness to this real nature. His personality was a perfect reflection of his writings. He was a noble man, a spiritual man, a contemplative, a "Gnostic" or "Pneumatic", and a "primordial" man.

The purpose of the following pages is to give a more precise, albeit incomplete, insight into Frithjof Schuon's spiritual personality.
