Description

Vladimir Soloviev (1853-1900), one of the greatest philosophers of the nineteenth century, was the founder of a tradition of Russian spirituality that brought together philosophy, mysticism, and theology with a powerful social message.

This unique, timely book -- the first in-depth portrait of Soloviev as a mystic to appear in English -- is the result of Dr Allen's lifelong research into Russian mysticism.

Reviews

'Vladimir Soloviev is not well-known in this country, but this book provides an illuminating introduction to his life and thought by an author familiar with the work of Rudolf Steiner… his words live on and will surely resonate with any sensitive reader whose spiritual life will at least in part be mirrored in the experience of Soloviev.'
-- David Lorimer, Scientific and Medical Network Review
