2013 (English)In: Philosophy, Literature, Mysticism: An Anthology of essays on the thought and influence of Emanuel Swedenborg / [ed] Stephen McNeilly, London: The Swedenborg Society , 2013, 1, 233-250 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Examines the Swedenborg-Emerson-Whitman connection and especially the more direct Swedenborg-Whitman relation, tracking Whitman's striking comments on Swedenborg and suggesting that the poetic language of Leaves of Grass may partly reflect the doctrine of correspondences. Read in terms of current contemporary hermeneutics the title means "Truths of what is alive in man".
