Show Summary Details


This concluding chapter reviews the discussions presented in the book. The book has used kabbalistic texts to articulate philosophically the poetic imagination and hermeneutic orientation of the medieval Jewish esoteric lore. It concludes that the myth of the divine androgyne in kabbalistic sources, as in Gnostic compositions of the late antiquity, is yet another expression of a socially dominant androcentrism.
