By Margarita Porete,Blanca Garí
Escrito en forma de un diálogo entre personificaciones alegóricas, y en el marco de las formas de expresión de los angeles literatura cortés, El espejo de las almas simples es una obra que enraíza en las corrientes de los angeles llamada «mística femenina» del siglo XIII y cuyos contenidos se vinculan estrechamente al pensamiento del Maestro Eckhart, quien casi con seguridad lo conoció y leyó. El libro, caído en el olvido, fue redescubierto, y con él su autora, en pleno siglo XX. Desde entonces se reconoce en esta obra uno de los grandes hitos de los angeles literatura mística occidental.
«Antes de enfrentarme a un juicio por herejía en l. a. Edad Media, yo habría dejado de escribir. Pero Margarita Porete no lo hizo; period un espíritu libre y una valiente escritora que estaba dispuesta a arriesgarlo todo, incluso su vida».

Identity: the need of a latest Idea is the 1st accomplished historical past of identification because the resolution to the query, "who, or what, am I?" It covers the century from the top of global conflict I, while id during this feel first grew to become a subject matter for writers and philosophers, to 2010, whilst eu political leaders declared multiculturalism a failure simply as Canada, which pioneered it, was once hailing its good fortune. alongside the way in which the e-book examines Erik Erikson's thoughts of mental id and identification trouble, which made the note well-known; the flip to collective identification and the increase of id politics in Europe and the United States; forms and theories of crew identification; debates over accommodating collective identities inside liberal democracy; the connection among person and crew id; the postmodern critique of id as an idea; and the methods it still reworked the social sciences and changed our principles of ethics.
