This chapter contains excerpts from D. T. Suzuki's Suedenborugu (Swedenborg), a book about Swedish scientist and religious philosopher Emanuel Swedenborg. In the Preface, Suzuki describes Swedenborg as revolutionary in theology, traveler of heaven and hell, champion of the spiritual world, king of the mystical realm, clairvoyant unique in history, scholar of incomparable vigor, scientist of penetrating intellect, gentleman free of worldly taint. Chapter 1 deals with Swedenborg's discoveries in theology, philosophy, and psychology as well as his theological doctrines, which Suzuki claims resemble those of Buddhism. Chapter 4 focuses on the singularity of Swedenborg's spiritual vision. Suzuki says Swedenborg provides excellent material for psychological research into clairvoyance and clairvoyants in contemporary Japan.

Keywords:   theology, D. T. Suzuki, Suedenborugu, Emanuel Swedenborg, heaven, hell, spiritual vision, philosophy, clairvoyance, clairvoyants
