ABSTRACT
The article offers a look the significance of mysticism in social science. The author argues that the core experience of mysticism is a subject matter which challenges the underlying assumptions of contemporary social thought. He stresses that the study of mysticism is forcing people to shift into new paradigms as with the study of sub-atomic structure in physics. Further, he opines that the reverberations of this shift will affect social theory as a whole, not only the aspects of it which touch on mysticism.
