The Prophetic Spirit In Its Relation To Wisdom And Madness

Augustus Clissold

""The Prophetic Spirit In Its Relation To Wisdom And Madness"" is a book written by Augustus Clissold. The book explores the concept of prophetic spirit and its relationship with wisdom and madness. It delves into the idea that the prophetic spirit is not limited to religious figures, but can also be found in artists, poets, and even individuals who experience mental illness.Clissold examines the experiences of various prophets and seers throughout history, including biblical figures such as Isaiah and Jeremiah, as well as more contemporary figures like William Blake and Vincent van Gogh. He argues that the prophetic spirit is often accompanied by a sense of madness or otherworldliness, but that this does not necessarily detract from its wisdom.Throughout the book, Clissold explores the tension between rationality and intuition, and suggests that the prophetic spirit can provide a bridge between the two. He also discusses the role of prophecy in contemporary society, and how it can be used to inspire creativity and spiritual growth.Overall, ""The Prophetic Spirit In Its Relation To Wisdom And Madness"" is a thought-provoking exploration of the nature of prophecy and its relationship with wisdom and madness. It offers a unique perspective on the role of intuition and spirituality in modern life, and is sure to be of interest to anyone interested in the intersection of religion, art, and psychology.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
