Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Saint John of the Cross is one of the greatest figures in the history of Western mysticism and one of the greatest poets of the Spanish language. This book examines his thought and then applies it to contemporary issues and culture. No other book engages John of the Cross with contemporary philosophy and theology.

"Much of the book is devoted to showing the unexpected value that flows from the thought of John of the Cross. The author shows how the works of Saint John of the Cross can be used to understand issues and questions raised in contemporary thought. This is a work of solid scholarship presented in a convincing manner. It discusses ramifications of John of the Cross' thought not to be found in other texts." -- Gerard P. Brennan, Holy Family College

Daniel A. Dombrowski is the author of Hartshorne and the Metaphysics of Animal rights, also published by SUNY Press, as well as the author of Plato's Philosophy of History; and Thoreau the Platonist.
