Strand Campus, London
Join the Department of Theology & Religious Studies on 12 February for The Mystical Sources of Existentialist Thought book launch seminar.
At the time when existentialism was a dominant intellectual and cultural force, a number of commentators observed that some of the language of existential philosophy, not least its interpretation of human existence in terms of nothingness, evoked the language of so-called mystical writers. This book takes on this observation and explores the evidence for the influence of mysticism on the philosophy of existentialism.
