Course description

The gate was opened to me: the philosophy of German mysticism:

Mystics often write that they have immediate understanding of the Divine, even if they sometimes add that the content of their insight cannot possibly be explained. But if so, then for whom do they write? And how can their writings be interpreted from a philosophical perspective? The course will introduce the main mystical tradition that developed in Germany through two major mystical philosophers: Meister Eckhart (c.1260-1328) and Jacob Böhme (1575-1624). We will also explore biblical and philosophical sources of mysticism.
