Abstract:

The foremost living Jewish philosopher and interpreter of Hasidism here retells the stories of the last of the great Jewish mystics, Rabbi Nachman of Bratzlav.

The author prefaces these classic tales with an illuminating introduction to mysticism and its history, a biography of Rabbi Nachman and a critical evaluation of his stories. Also included are a selection of Rabbi Nachman's mystical sayings and an account of the Rabbi's remarkable journey to Palestine.
