From the Back Cover:

Mysticism After Modernity offers a truly postmodern interpretation of the great mystics and their writing, thus appealing to readers across a wide range of disciplines.

Don Cuppitt argues that extensive modern literature about mysticism has rested on a mistake-the belief that their can be meaningful experience prior to language. The mystics have been perceived as first having had profound experiences that they then put into words.

However, in postmodern thought experience doesnot give meaning to language; on the contrary, language gives meaning to experience. And when the mystics are seen as having been primarily writers, our understanding of them is revolutionized.

About the Author:

Don Cuppitt was, for over 25 years, dean of Emmanuel College Cambridge. He has become known for his many controversial books and television programs, including The Sea of Faith. He has recently retired in order study and write full time.
