Information I drew on for this episode can be found at the following sites.
I don’t know of any extended philosophical discussions of mystery. No doubt someone has done it, but the theory I present in this episode is, as far as I know, of my own construction.
It draws strongly, however, on the work on Edmund Husserl (and perhaps also Martin Heidegger, since Heidegger discusses mystery somewhere).
The best introduction to Husserlian phenomenology is by Robert Sokolowski. (For people already invested in the work of philosophy, you also can’t do better than Sokolowski’s Husserlian Meditations.)
