  • Meister Eckhart by Kurt Flasch - Yale University Press
    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 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 Kurt Flasch is a German author and philosopher and the recipient of numerous honors including the Sigmund Freud Prize by the Deutsche Akademie fur Sprache und Dichtung and the Hannah Arendt Prize for Political Thought He is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the Ruhr University Bochum and lives in Mainz Flasch is one of the senior scholars and best known writers on late German medieval thought in Europe This convincing book should be required reading for anyone interested in understanding the background and sources of Eckhart s ideas Clyde Lee Miller Stony Brook University In this masterpiece Kurt Flasch one of the world s foremost Eckhart scholars shows how Eckhart remains a thorn in the flesh of his readers He stands against any systematic attempt to catch his imagination and he cannot be institutionally subsumed by any church or religious order Markus Vinzent King s College London and Max Weber Centre Erfurt More like this Recently viewed titles prev next John Knox Jane Dawson 14 99 Becoming Freud Adam Phillips 10 99 Franz Kafka Saul Friedlander 10 99 Martin Luther Professor Scott H Hendrix 25 00 John Knox Jane Dawson 25 00 George Whitefield Thomas S Kidd 25 00 Gandhi Arvind Sharma 9 99 David David Wolpe 18 99 Thomas Aquinas Denys Turner 14 99 Bishop von Galen Beth A Griech
