Albert the Great, Meister Eckhart and Women's Spirituality

This seminar examines Meister Eckhart’s mystical discourse and its conceptual configuration as a ‘contradictory monism’ against the backdrop of the “Dionysian” tradition of Albert the Great (and Thomas Aquinas) and the current efflorenscence of women’s mysticism represented by Marguerite Porete.   In so doing it explores a properly historical understanding of a philosophical, theological or spiritual figure’s choice of discursive type.
