George E. Clarkson

This work is a fresh approach to the mystical writings of the 18th-century writer, William Law. New biographical material emphasizes ways in which we see Law's mysticism with a strong ethical reference. He is presented as a major interpreter of the philosophy of Jacob Boehme. The book includes research done in Law's village of King's Cliffe and at his college, Emmanuel College in Cambridge.
Contents: This book is a new study of William Law's mysticism seeing him as a major interpreter of Jacob Boehme, and as a proponent of an ethical mysticism.
