Mysticism: Religion, Philosophy, Feeling or All One?

Mysticism: Religion, Philosophy, Feeling or All One?

On the one hand, the word "mysticism" is used almost inflationarily for everything that is considered mysterious, even opaque. On the other hand, it is argued that "mysticism," especially the mysticism of the great religions, shows different ways to the same deepest ground of all religions, indeed of all human existence. Thus "mysticism" could connect religions and people and let them become united in a peace-making way. But what is mysticism and is it universally represented? Do mystical paths lead to commonality or to conflict? Are mystical paths, meditative and contemplative aids to inner peace and serenity in the gears of this world?

Course leader: Prof. Dr. Dr. Uhde, Bernhard. The course leader is director of the Institute for Interreligious Studies Freiburg and Islam representative at the Archdiocese Freiburg.
