Title: Tension of Existence
Subtitle: An Analysis of Harry Williams' Responses to the Movement of Divine Presence
Author(s): GARDNER, Fiona
Journal: Studies in Spirituality
Volume: 29 Date: 2019
This paper uses some of the relevant ideas of the philosopher Eric Voegelin and the analytical psychologist Carl Jung as a theoretical and critical framework to reflect on and consider the mental breakdown and psycho-spiritual experiences of the theologian Harry Williams that allowed him to move from a state of spiritual closure to one of differentiation and spiritual opening that characterizes his writings. Each interpretive approach offers differing emphases yet together provide a seamlessly compatible way of understanding Williams’ emergence into his true nature and spiritual authenticity.
