An exhaustive study of the temple of Amun-Mut-Khonsu at Luxor, proving that Egypt, not Greece, is the foundation of Western civilization. Inner Traditions is proud to present one of the monumental works of the twentieth century. The Temple of Man represents the most important breakthrough in our understanding of Ancient Egypt since the discovery of the Rosetta Stone. This exhaustive study reveals in words, art, and photographs the mathematical, medical, and metaphysical sophistication of Ancient Egypt. Through a reading of the measures and proportions, axes and orientations, and bas-reliefs of the famous temple of Amun-Mut-Khonsu at Luxor, Schwaller de Lubicz provides convincing evidence that Egypt, not Greece, is the foundation of Western civilization.
