Huston Smith, revered philosopher, lecturer, and author in the field of religion and mysticism, gives succinct answers to questions posed by Sophia on a wide range of topics including globalization, the environmental crisis, bioengineering, and the relation among religions. The roots of the Kabbalah are examined in two penetrating articles: The Wisdom of Christian Kabbalah by Wolfgang Smith and The Question of Sufi Influence on Early Kabbalah by Tom Block. Other articles include Ananda Coomaraswamy Invites Shiva to Dance by Dan Rudmann and Muslim Intellectuals and the Perennial Philosophy by Zachary Markwith in which he discusses the legacy of Frithjof Schuon and Rene Guenon in particular.
