Sri Aurobindo is the greatest

Robert W. Godwin, the celebrity author of One Cosmos Under God, recently noted in his highly popular blog One Cosmos, "Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998), arguably the greatest religious metaphysician who ever lived" while comparing him with Sri Aurobindo. But Godwin (Gagdad Bob) has not read The Life Divine and has acquired his impression of Sri Aurobindo from several secondary sources.
H. Allen Orr says in his reply to Daniel C. Dennett (in response to A Mission to Convert) "In his popular works on evolution, and especially in The Selfish Gene, Dawkins wrestled with the best evolutionary thinkers —Darwin, Hamilton, and Trivers," but forgets about The Life Divine. How all these people are talking about God, Man and Nature without reading or referring to the great work of Sri Aurobindo is incomprehensible. [TNM]
