What is included with this book?


Although she died cruelly at Auschwitz at the age of twenty-nine, Etty Hillesum left a lasting legacy of mystical thought in her letters and diaries. Coetsier analyzes the life and writings of Hillesum from the standpoint of Voegelinrs"s views on consciousness-especially his philosophy of luminous participation in the transcendent ground of being. Through a careful reading of her letters and diaries, Coetsier reveals the inner development of Hillesumrs"s mystically grounded resistance to Nazism as he guides readers through the symbolism of her spiritual journey, making effective use of Voegelinrs"s analytics of experience and symbolization to trace her path to spiritual truth.
