Coleridge was a visionary drawn to the numinous, but he was also a spontaneous connoisseur of the sensory life. Such double-mindedness has often been criticized as a sort of incapacity; but the capability of entertaining equally necessary kinds of perception might be thought a kind of virtue. The study examines Coleridge's formative double-vision as it manifests itself in his profound self-analysis, his philosophy of mind, and his literary criticism.
