Daniel O. GAMARRA

Abstract

According to Hugo de San Victor, love is the sourle and the main reason of the self acquaintance. This self acquaintance does not only enable the soul to know what it is, but also and mainly to love more. The confluencia of the acquaintance and love expresses the inwardness structure. This interior warping enables the mysticism. Without the self acquaintance it would not be possible to receive neither the Holy Ghost's gifts nor mystic contemplation.
