The Free Spirit in Eckhart
L'esprit libre chez Eckhart
At a time when reflection on freedom was scarcely developed, Meister Eckhart gives full scope to it, going as far as proposing an « ethics of freedom » through the free spirit which is not only a fundamental goal, but also the condition for the birth of God in the soul. Illustrating by this his programme of preaching, Eckhart brings out the anthropological orientation of his work.
