Two More Video Clips from
the Sacred Web Conference:
"Tradition in the Modern World"

We have now posted five video clips from the Sacred Web Conference in September, 2006, which featured some of the most important living authors on the Perennial Philosophy, Comparative Religion, and Traditionalism. (For more information on the DVD of the presentations, click here.) These are the clips which are available so far on this web site (the newest are first):

  • Prof. Harry Oldmeadow speaks on "Tradition Betrayed: The False Prophets of Modernism," surveying the "pseudo-mythologies" of Darwin, Marx, Freud, and Nietzsche (click here to view).
  • Prof. Seyyed Hossein Nasr presents "The Recovery of the Sacred: Tradition and Perennialism in the Contemporary World, clearly explaining many fundamental ideas regarding Tradition and Modernism (click here to view).
  • Dr. Reza Shah-Kazemi covers "Traditional Action in the Contemporary World," addressing age-old questions regarding contemplation (and prayer) and worldly action (click here to view).
  • Dr. William Chittick discusses how Tradition, in this case primarily Confucian and Islamic, views the critical process of learning (click here to view).
  • Conference convener Ali Lakhani gives introductory remarks and explains the Traditionalist or Perennialist worldview (click here to view).
Clicking on one of the clips above will take you to our Library of Film Clips, with your selected video loaded in the player.
