ROMANTIC MYSTICISM: GENESIS OF MODERNITY FEELINGS
JACOB BOEHME'S PHENOMENOLOGY AND MYSTICISM INTERPRETED BY A. KOYRÉ
Author: Yampolskaya Anna, assistant professor, Faculty of Philosophy, Russian State University for the Humanities (RSUH, Moscow, Russia), e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Summary: We show how Koyré, in his interpretation of Böhme’s mysticism, uses methods of phenomenology, albeit not the phenomenology of Husserl. He views the revelations of the Divinity to itself in analogy with the epiphany of the world and the ego to the phenomenological observer. Koyré reduces the Sophia to the exterior objective image of the Divinity, while emphasizing the role of nature and the world in Böhme’s cosmological views. Böhme’s theosophy is understood as a teaching about the conditions of the ideal personality. The anthropocentric tradition of German metaphysics stems from Böhme; it is a counterweight to the dehumanising philosophy of scientific rationalism.
Keywords: Koyré, Böhme, mysticism, phenomenology, anthropology, cosmology, history of science, history of religion
