Mystical Union and Deconstruction

Philosophy and Theology 15 (1):3-18 (2003)

Abstract
In this essay, I criticize John Caputo’s deconstructive analysis of the nature of mystical union. Using the works of St. John of the Cross, I show that the notion of mystical union does not belong to “the metaphysics of presence.” I also discuss the true significance of deconstruction for the study of mysticism
