Spiritual Practices and the Language Problem

515

Abstract

In this article a new approach to the interpretation of religious-mystical experience, which bases on a notion of “mystical practice” as specific underclass of spiritual practices, is being tried out. An analysis of anthropological concepts, in which the practices of constructing oneself are central, is being held (M. Foucault, P. Ado). A role of spiritual practices and spiritual exercises in constructing person’s consti- tution is being outlined. Problems of spiritual practice language, interconnections between apophatic and kataphatic interpretation of experience and of definition of spiritual tradition as a certain communicative dimension are being raised.
