In The Transcendence of the Cave, John Niemeyer Findlay concludes the project which has carried him over two series of Gifford Lectures: to argue that all descriptions of the human condition which fail to take into account the mystical and transcendental are necessarily incomplete and misleading. In this second series of lectures, Findlay completes his examination of phenomena which can be said to be of this world, and turns to a descriptive examination of the transcendent.
The Transcendence of the Cave
In The Transcendence of the Cave, John Niemeyer Findlay continues the project he embarked upon in The Discipline of the Cave. Having already investigated the realm of bodies and the realm of minds, Findlay opens this series of lectures with a consideration of the realm of reason and spirit. The first lecture, ‘Foundations of the Realm of Reason and Spirit’, reviews the material covered in the previous series of lectures.
