Abstract

In Knowledge and the Sacred Nasr analyzes humanity�s pursuit of knowledge and proposes that in every culture throughout human history humanity�s quest for knowledge has been a sacred activity as men and women seek to discover the Divine. Drawing from many traditions including philosophy, Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism, and Zoroastrianism, Nasr explores humanity�s quest for knowledge and quest for the Divine and how these quests relate to one another throughout history.
