Essays in Religion and Morality by William James

Book Description

"Essays in Religion and Morality" brings together a dozen papers of varying length to these two themes so crucial to the life and thought of William James. Reflections on the two subjects permeate, first, James's presentation of his father's "Literary Remains"; second, his writings on human immortality and the relation between reason and faith; third, his two memorial pieces, one on Robert Gould Shaw and the other on Emerson; fourth, his consideration of the energies and powers of human life; and last, his writings on the possibilities of peace, especially as found in his famous essay "The Moral Equivalent of War."These speeches and essays were written over a period of twenty-four years. The fact that James did not collect and publish them himself in a single volume does not reflect on their intrinsic worth or on their importance in James's philosophical work, since they include some of the best known and most influential of his writings. All the essays, throughout their varied subject matter, are consistently and characteristically Jamesian in the freshness of their attack on the problems and failings of humankind and in their steady faith in human powers.

Pragmatism by William James Pragmatism, Paperback (February 2015)

The word pragmatism is used everywhere today, from business to sports to politics. Written in an engaging and accessible style, this title offers a corrective to modern uses of the word, since the voice that speaks in its pages embodies precisely the opposite values from the pejorative semes the word has acquired.

Will to Believe by William James Will to Believe, Paperback (June 2013)

Philosopher William James posits pragmatic grounds for religious belief and moral action in these ten essays, published together in 1897.
