This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

Volume 1 | Volume 2 | Volume 3| Volume 4 | Volume 5 | Volume 6

General remarks

Rene Guenon’s excellent book Man & His Becoming According to the Vedanta has the advantage of being praised by one notable Hindu[1] as the best work on the subject in any European language. In that light, it seems that we would be hard pressed to do better, and so we have leaned heavily on his exposition for the summary below. Moreover, if this subject is found to be of any interest at all to the reader, we strongly recommend obtaining a copy of the book for further reading. Also, the reader should keep in mind that, as stated in the title of Guenon’s book, we have adopted the point of view the Vedanta. Passages from Hindu scriptures are cited using Guenon’s translation.
