Penguin Classics Selected Writings

by Meister Eckhart
Foreword by Oliver Davies
Translated by Oliver Davies

Penguin UK (PB) | August 30, 2004 | Trade Paperback

Not yet rated | write a review

Composed during a critical time in the evolution of European intellectual life, the works of Meister Eckhart (c. 1260-1327) are some of the most powerful medieval attempts to achieve a synthesis between ancient Greek thought and the Christian faith. Writing with great rhetorical brilliance, Eckhart combines the neoplatonic concept of oneness - the idea that the ultimate principle of the universe is single and undivided - with his Christian belief in the Trinity, and considers the struggle to describe a perfect God through the imperfect medium of language. Fusing philosophy and religion with vivid originality and metaphysical passion, these works have intrigued and inspired philosophers and theologians from Hegel to Heidegger and beyond.

From Our Editors

 

The writings of German Dominican Meister Eckhart have fascinated German thinkers throughout the ages. Meister Eckhart: Selected Writings collects the exemplary works of this 13th-century cultural icon. These writings probe the nature of God and the spirit of "intellect." Written in a rhetorical style, they present a metaphysical drama that tugs between Christian doctrine and introspective reflection. Clearly translated, this edition lets readers see his most unfiltered meaning.
