Symbolism is the intuitive means of overcoming the limitations of reason.  Here Schwaller explains how true progress in human thought can be made only if we call upon the "symbolizing" faculty of intelligence, developed and refined in the temple culture of ancient Egypt and reflected in its hieroglyphs.

About the Author
R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz (1887-1961) was one of the most important philosophers, mathematicians, and Egyptologists of this century. His elucidation of the temple at Luxor and his presentation of the Egyptian understanding of a special quality of innate consciousness form a bridge that links the sacred science of the Ancients to its rediscovery in our own time.

The brilliant French Hermeticist R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz and his wife, Isha, spent fifteen years in Egypt researching ancient sacred traditions. Their analysis of the symbolism found in the monuments of the Pharaohs represents the most important breakthrough in our comprehension of ancient Egypt since Champollion deciphered the Rosetta Stone.
