    Abstract

    Most of the studies on The Journey of the Mind Into God, written in the 13th century by Saint Bonaventure of Bagnoregio, have been carried out preferably from a theological approach. However, this research aims to promote an approach to his work in connection with the difficulties of current times through the description and interpretation of some philosophical elements that are at the base of the Journey such as: the reality of itinerancy, philosophy as fundamentum and the fruition of truth or mystical ascent. This intertextuality is presented with the intention of understanding and illuminating the situation of contemporary man who, in his immanent way of assuming the world as a tourist, has been distracted from the dialectical relationship that leads him through daily experience to God.The conclusion presents the figures of the tourist and the itinerant as a sketch of the proposed intertextuality between the Itinerarium Mentis in Deum and the situation of contemporary man.
