Mysticism and Experience discusses the dynamic relationship between revelation and personal experience epitomized by, but not exclusive to mystical experience. The author argues that the inner, personal understanding of nature, God, and the self that one acquires through feeling and connection is similar to a mystical experience, and that this inner knowledge is as important as the outer knowledge gained through our rational faculties. He approaches his subject through an analysis of the writings of the great German mystic Jacob B'hme. Deeply influenced by the growth of modern science and with ties to the 16th century spiritual and achemical philosophy, B'hme is seen as trying to balance the rational/spiritual scales that we are still discussing today.
