      Mysticism and Language is somewhat of a hodge-podge of philosophical analyses of, historical accounts about, and lengthy quotations from, mystical literature. Much of considerable richness, however, can be mined therefrom, and anyone at all interested in the subject can benefit a good deal from a careful reading of it.
