Rational Psychology
(ISBN: 0-915221-71-3)



A posthumous work, written in 1742. Swedenborg makes a detailed examination of the human mind from the innermost soul down to its most earthly and sense-based elements. He considers the nature of emotions and passions as well as different kinds and levels of ideas, and the process of thinking. Finally, he concludes with a discussion of the effect of bodily death on the mind, with speculations as to which mental elements perish at death and which survive.
