From New Platonism to New Age - Ways of Understanding And Interpreting H.C. Andersen's Spirituality
The new Platonism is an old philosophical system from which originated a specific Weltanschauung, a world-view and sensitivity aimed at disclosing and maintaining the correspondences, the links between ideas, phenomena and human beings. This wholistic concept of the world and the man, typical for the Romanticism, has been expressed by many of its most eminent representatives in Europe and in Denmark (among others) by H.C. Oersted, a physicist but also well known as a romantic philosopher, through his lectures on cosmology and the spirit of nature. It is a fact that H.C. Andersen has been deeply influenced by Oersted's book 'The spirit of nature' (1850) and by the idealistic movement called in Denmark organismetanken, directed to co-ordination of everything in the existence. H.C. Andersen created an extremely original poetics based on the idea of en faelles aand (a common spirit) and in my paper I shall try to explain why its magic works even today, in our highly materialistic and computerized world and to explore the opportunities provided probably by the New Age movement, neither science, nor religion or philosophy (just like organismetanken in 19th century) to widen the narrow proportions of our ordinary life and to stimulate a new awareness, a transformative, creative spirit necessary for understanding and interpreting Andersen's spiritual message and rich symbolism.
