Mysticism and Madness: The Religious Thought of Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav

About 200 years after R. Nachman of Bratslav’s demise, his philosophical writings and literary creation remain lively and provocative materials in both Jewish culture and the New Age movement.

Something of R. Nachman’s magic and magnetic force are illuminated in this research, which presents the Bratslavian mysticism as a unique link in the history of Jewish mysticism. The mystical worldview is the axis of this book, but its branches stretch out to key issues in the Bratslavian world such as belief and imagination, dreams and the land of Israel, melodies and song.
