Is Kabbalah Mysticism?

An interesting debate is going on at Zeek magazine. Last December Boaz Huss argued in an article  that the word “mysticism” should not be used in relation to Kabbalah and it being a theological category should not be the subject of academic research. In the March issue of Zeek Shaul Magid posted  a detailed opposing opinion and Boaz Huss replied to that. It is worthwhile reading all four webpages (four because Magid’s is broken to two) to learn of the possible critical perspectives of this debate.
