Ethical Theory and Mystical Experience: A Response to Professors Proudfoot and Wainwright

Journal of Religious Ethics 4 (1):37 - 46 (1976)
Abstract
The author extends the conclusions of his book "Mysticism and Morality" in light of criticisms by Proudfoot and Wainwright. Against Proudfoot, he argues that the form of any "morality" derivable from mystical insights is so idiosyncratic that it renders meaningless the categories by which we classify morality. Against Wainwright, he appeals to the way in which a mystical insight would penetrate the remainder of one's experience and transfigure it in ways that have moral connotations.
