This wide-ranging selection of writings by "perennialist" author William Stoddart exposes the false ideologies of postmodernism and calls for a return to traditional religion, especially in its mystical dimensions. In Part I, "Forgetting", Stoddart uncovers the errors of contemporary ideologies such as progress and evolution, secularism and fundamentalism, relativism and humanism. In Part II, "Remembering (theory)", he defines the essential doctrinal beliefs of traditional religion. Part III, "Remembering (practice)", discusses the operative dimensions of spirituality and includes vivid personal accounts of visits to monasteries on Mt. Athos and an audience with the venerable Jagadguru of Kanchipuram, India. "Remembering in a World of Forgetting" includes several of Stoddart's previously unpublished articles as well as excerpts from his private correspondence.
