Mysticism. A Variety of Psychological Perspectives
- Antoon Geels
- Jacob Belzen
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: International Series in the Psychology of Religion
The scholarly study of religious mysticism is a vast and complex area of research, embracing studies from numerous disciplines. This volume contains a variety of psychological perspectives. The majority of these focuses on mystical phenomena within Christianity, but some contributors also deal with mysticism in non-Christian traditions. As in most studies, phenomena, persons, or occurrences in the past are emphasized. Although very different, and coming from a range of academic background, the contributors are nevertheless all united in their attempts to understand more about particular forms of mysticism, from a perspective that puts the involvement of the human being in the centre of mysticism with respect to both its theory and method.
