Descrizione dell’editore

Available for the first time in English, Martin Lamm’s work on the evolution of Emanuel Swedenborg’s (1688-1772) philosphical system has stood as the standard humanist interpretation of Swedenborg’s writings. First published in Swedish in 1915, the book has influenced generations of European scholars. His detailed investigation of the philosophical and religious background of Swedenborgian thought is an illuminating inquiry into the mystery of how Swedenborg was transformed from a scientist into a seer.

Lamm demonstrates that there is a logical and consisten line of thought developed from Swedenborg’s earliest childhood experiences to his most mature theological statements. Backed by scholarly evidence, Lamm shows that Swedenborg’s scientifically based worldview was not changed by his religious revelations -- rather, his visions completed and corroborated the picture.

Martin Lamm’s analysis of the genesis of Swedenborgian philosophy is a masterful and lively portrait of one of history’s most remarkable thinkers.
