Kabbalistic Psychology

Examine and evaluate psychological insights found within the corpus of kabbalistic texts.

Examine and evaluate psychological insights found within the corpus of kabbalistic texts. Such insights may be seen to comprise two related aspects: First, the challenge to understanding the nature of mind and, second, the development of techniques and practices directed at attaining a transformed level of being.

We examine what may be best understood as a form of esoteric psychology through which kabbalists grasped the inner, generally unconscious, determinants of thought, and practised techniques through which they participated in what they conceived as the intra-divine reality.
