From the Publisher. This collection includes “The Cloud of Unknowing,” “The Mystical Theology of Saint Denis,” “The Book of Privy Counselling,” and “An Epistle on Prayer.” Against a tradition of devotional writings that focused on knowing God through Christ’s Passion and his humanity, these texts describe a transcendent God who exists beyond human knowledge and human language. These four texts are at the heart of medival mystical theology in their call for contemplation, calm, and above all, love, as the way to understand the Divine.

Daniel Libeskind

The clearest and most rational of all philosophy books. Very useful in the era of fuzzy cloud logic.
