Wolffs training in philosophy and science convinced him that it was important to ground his thought in immediate awareness to avoid the pitfalls of mere intellectual speculation. As a mystic, he included firsthand accounts of his experiences and transformations, the sort of invaluable primary data that is most often lacking in a mystics writings.. Ron Leonard discusses Wolffs influences and realizations and uses phenomenological and analytic methods to explore the implications of his work within the contemporary philosophical context.
