Meister Eckhart was a German mystic philosopher for the power of his preaching. Often as have his writings been quoted, and increasingly so in recent years, there is surprisingly little first hand familiarity with his works among the thousands who might be expected to read and enjoy them. There is only one translation of his works in English, a stiff, literal rendition in two volumes unavailable in America. This modern translation is a labor of love by one who is an Eckhart scholar. The translation is made from Eckhart's middle-high German vernacular and is rendered in appropriate American style. Furthermore, this translation incorporates the tremendous amount of recent Eckhart scholarship done in Germany prior to the present war. It also includes a translation of "Defense," the key to Eckhart Criticism, hitherto unpublished in any modern language.
