Book Description

Ink inscription on the pre-title page reads: "Sister von Willer: with respect and affection from the author Idries Shah 1972." Titles; contents list & foreword to front. Idries Shah's Reflections is a collection of fables, aphorisms, and statements that challenge the conditioned mind. The book confronts the reader with unaccustomed perspectives and ideas, in an attempt to set the mind free, to see how things really are. As the book's foreword states, 'Do you imagine that fables exist only to amuse or to instruct, and are based upon fiction? The best ones are delineations of what happens in real life, in the community and in the individual's mental processes'. Reflections provides an entertaining and memorable series of views of human thought and current problems: an analysis from a fresh angle.
