Meister Eckhart

Full Product Description

Renowned philosopher Kurt Flasch offers a full-scale reappraisal of the life and legacy of Meister Eckhart, the medieval German theologian, philosopher, and alleged mystic who was active during the Avignon Papacy of the fourteenth century and posthumously condemned as a heretic by Pope John XXII. Disputing his subject's frequent characterization as a hero of a modern, syncretic spirituality, Flasch attempts to free Eckhart from the "Mystical Flood" by inviting his readers to "think along with Eckhart" in a careful rereading of his Latin and German works. This fascinating study makes a powerful case for Eckhart's position as an important philosopher of the time rather than a mystic and casts a new light on an important figure of the Middle Ages whose ideas attracted considerable attention from such diverse modern thinkers as Schopenhauer, Vivekananda, Suzuki, Fromm, and Derrida.

Meister Eckhart by Kurt Flasch was published by Yale University Press in October 2015. The ISBN for Meister Eckhart is 9780300204865.
