Retour ŗ Henry Corbin

The final volume in a trilogy of works which explore the implications of the spiritual vision of Henry Corbin (1903-1978). Corbin was one of the 20th centuryís premier scholars of Islamic mysticism. He was a colleague of C. G. Jung and a major figure at the Eranos Conferences. He introduced the concept of the mundus imaginalis into contemporary thought and his work has provided much of the intellectual foundation for archetypal psychology as developed by James Hillman. But Corbinís underlying theological and philosophical project was to provide a framework for understanding the hidden unity of the religions of the monotheistic tradition: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. His profound grasp of the phenomenology of the religious imagination and his uniquely ecumenical approach make his work essential reading in a complex and pluralistic age.
