This book is an attack on the scientism of the modern world. In these beautiful and profound pages Rene Guenon looks back to an ancient Wisdom, once common to both East and West, but now almost entirely lost. Contemporary civilization itself --- with its industrial societies and illusory notions of progress -- is his target.

"Among the features characteristic of the modern mentality the tendency to bring everything to an exclusively quantitative point of view will be taken from now on as the central theme of this treatise. This tendency is most marked in the scientific conceptions of recent centuries but it is almost as conspicuous in other domains, notably in that of social organization; so much so that with one reservation the nature and necessity of which will appear hereafter, our period could almost be defined as being essentially and primarily the "reign of quantity”."
