Emanuel Swedenborg: Scientist and Mystic

View material.

Emanuel Swedenborg: Scientist and Mystic is an alternative biography of Emanuel Swedenborg, the 18th century scientist, philosopher, and theologian. Its author, Signe Toksvig, who is not a Swedenborgian, focuses on Swedenborg's mystical and paranormal experiences. Though it contains some inaccuracies (for example, Swedenborg did not write his books by automatic writing), and should not be used as a primary biography of Swedenborg, it is otherwise well-written and very enjoyable to read.
