Course aim
read and analyze exemplary texts from the mystical tradition of western Christianity, detect the critical dimension in those texts, see how the mystical texts conceal 'dispositives' and 'structures' at work in the non-religious (political/ethical/cultural) discourses of modernity, understand the connection between the 'old' classic mystical argumentation and today's way of dealing with social and cultural challenges.
