A remarkable conspectus of philosophical contacts between East and West through the ages. This important monograph constitutes the whole text of Idries Shah's Seminar at Sussex University, fully annotated, indexed and with a bibliography and notes. It knits together the available knowledge about Sufi thought and literature in its passage through many deforming influences, such as the development of cults, the misinterpretation by literalist scholars, and the fallacious comparisons of committed "specialists".

In Idries Shah's 'Wisdom of the Idiots', the 'idiots' are Sufis, called this because their wisdom penetrates to a depth which renders it inaccessible to the merely intelligent or academically-knowledgeable. The exercise-stories of the Sufis are tools prepared for a specific purpose. On this level the movements of the characters in a story portray psychological processes, and the story becomes a working blueprint of those processes.

Bashir Dervish describes his ordinary life: married, three children in good schools, relatively well-known in his field, a promising career in the civil service. Then the death of his father-in-law left Dervish with an unexpected inheritance, and the request that he dedicate himself to the "holy search for Truth." Partly out of curiosity about his father-in-law, Dervish took up the challenge. He first assessed the "visible" spiritual groups, found nothing he could take seriously, and turned to an elder statesman for advice. He was eventually sent to Idries Shah and on a remarkable journey through India, Greece, Yemen, and the Gulf. Dervish's riveting account gives us unparalleled insights into who the Sufis really are, what they say and do, and their effect on the modern world.
