Abstract

This article devoted to the analysis of mysticism as a cultural phenomenon. The author considers mysticism as a form of non-traditional cultural knowledge in relation to everyday and scientific knowledge. The article also examines the role of mysticism and mystical experience in religious culture. As part of the socio-philosophical analysis of mysticism, the study of the communicative aspects of this cultural phenomenon was carried out: the features of the language of the mystical experience, as well as the communicative interaction of the subject of mystical knowledge with society. As a result, it was revealed that the subject of mystical knowledge ignores the language constructions of everyday speech due to the fact that the usual form of speech does not allow expressing deep, expressive mystical experiences. In this regard, mystics construct their narrative and texts using metaphors and apophaticism, it can be understood by other members of the religious-mystical tradition, but remain misunderstood by ordinary people.
