Mysticism: a study in the nature and development of man's spiritural consciousness
A study in the nature and development of man's spiritual consciousness. This book falls naturally into two parts; each of which is really complete in itself, though they are in a sense complementary to one another. The first is intended to provide an introduction to the general subject of mysticism; while the second part contains a somewhat detailed study of the nature and development of man's spiritual or mystical consciousness.
