Biography of Peter Samsel

Peter Samsel is an independent scholar with wide-ranging interests in traditional metaphysics, symbolism, science, and art. Dr Samsel is the editor of the World Wisdom collection A Treasury of Sufi Wisdom: The Path of Unity. An additional contribution to World Wisdom books is his article, “A Unity with Distinctions: Parallels in the Thought of Gregory Palamas and Ibn al-Arabi,” which is singular in its detailed delineation of the profound parallels between Christian and Islamic mystical theologies. It appears in the volume Paths to the Heart: Sufism and the Christian East, edited by James Cutsinger.

Peter Samsel holds a doctorate in theoretical physics and is the author of articles and review essays in Parabola, Sophia: The Journal of Traditional Studies, and Sacred Web: A Journal of Tradition and Modernity. An article by Dr Samsel on the Sufi metaphysics of Divine unity drawn from the Islamic testimony of faith, titled “The First Pillar of Islam,” was selected by Parabola for their Parabola in the Classroom collection of scholarly articles for educators.
