Eliade was the grandfather of comparative religion studies. He was prepared to run against many anthropological studies and ideas, that were clearly out of date. His focus included many aspects of the ideas of the collective unconscious, I say this because he included archetypes in many of his statements. To anyone familiar with anthropology, this will be a refreshing overview of the groundbreaking ideas and philosophies that finally cracked the shell that held a strangle hold on Anthropology that began with simplistic studies of cultures that began with the leisure class in Britain and the U.S. in the late 19th century and early 20th century. He is still the great man of Human Studies,
as well as being a deep thinker on these issues. His passion for this aspect of Anthropology, comes through in his work.
Even those who are very familiar with his work will want to own this book.....If they don't already!
Be aware that this is a scholary book, but is not out of range for the interested reader.

Are we wondering how we, as beleivers/none belivers alike come to embrace the religion? The answer is in this book.

This book is a neat summation of a career, which, taken as a whole, was an amazing feat of a lifetime that will probably never be repeated again. Academia in Eliade's day was an agon of turbo charged minds who still possessed an elegant, old-style scholarly erudition. Thinking was the flower of a massive global system that could cull the best and brightest from hundreds of millions of Europeans and afford to keep them fed and comfortable, amidst enormous libraries with works collected from the biggest empires the world had known. But this discourse was still flush with confidence and hadn't yet passed into the closed, self-referential pedantry and nauseous over-specialization we often see today.

This time, furthermore, was one of tremendous discovery and enthusiasm over this entire world of religions that couldn't even have been imagined before. It was a time that was witnessing--well, the few who cared to notice were witnessing--the destruction of literally thousands of ancient traditions--ancient worlds. There was a palpable feeling that we had to learn from and save some glimmer of their meaning not only to preserve mankind's heritage, but also to, perhaps, learn the truths that would save us from ourselves. Something of the zeal of this quest in captured in "Youth Without Youth," a book and movie also to be highly recommended as a commentary on the pursuit that guided Eliade's life.

Eliade was one of the most Erudite thinkers in history, being familiar with the whole range of western sources from Homer and the bible to the latest results of phenomenological research, along with an admirable attention paid to the folk traditions of Europe. He had also read much of what was available from the entire rest of the world. The range of source material that Eliade had access to by his mastery of European and ancient languages was astounding.

In this book its almost like he has taken a whole truckload of source materials and anthropology books, drew a mind map of the contents on a five story tall white board, and then condensed the contents into the size of a single book.

I have reread the Myth of Eternal Return and Sacred and the Profane, somehow though, in this book I couldn't catch the earth shaking vision that the others did for me.
