Tage Lindbom


Tage Lindbom

Tage Leonard Lindbom (24 October 1909 - 2001), PhD in Political science, who was early in his life the party theoretician and director of the archives of the Swedish Social Democratic Party 1938-1965, but later in his life he found ibland in God and became a representative of the Traditional School and the Perennial philosophy. Lindbom has been called "the grand old man" of Swedish conservativism and is the author of more than 20 books on philosophy and religion. He was a contributor to the quarterly journal, Studies in Comparative Religion, which dealt with religious symbolism and the Traditionalist perspective.

Since the early 1960s Lindbom was a disciple of the Swiss metaphysician Frithjof Schuon, who is the foremost representative of sapiential esoterism in the modern world. Lindbom had an inner group of spiritual students in Sweden and is the author of the first esoteric commentary on the Koran in Swedish, entitled "Encounter with the Koran".
