World Wisdom The Library of Perennial Philosophy
The Library of Perennial Philosophy is dedicated to the exposition of the timelessTruth underlying the diverse religions. This Truth, often referred to as the SophiaPerennis—or Perennial Wisdom—finds its expression in the revealed Scriptures aswell as the writings of the great sages and the artistic creations of the traditionalworlds. 
The Sacred Foundations of Justice in Islam: The Teachings of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib 
 appears as one of our selections in the Perennial Philosophy series.
In the beginning of the twentieth century, a school of thought arose whichhas focused on the enunciation and explanation of the Perennial Philosophy.Deeply rooted in the sense of the sacred, the writings of its leading exponentsestablish an indispensable foundation for understanding the timeless Truth andspiritual practices which live in the heart of all religions. Some of these titlesare companion volumes to the Treasures of the World’s Religions series, whichallows a comparison of the writings of the great sages of the past with theperennialist authors of our time.
