Varieties of Religious Experience by William James

Book Description

Standing at the crossroads of psychology and religion, this catalyzing work applied the scientific method to a field abounding in abstract theory. William James believed that individual religious experiences, rather than the precepts of organized religions, were the backbone of the world's religious life. His discussions of conversion, repentance, mysticism and saintliness, and his observations on actual, personal religious experiences - all support this thesis. In his introduction, Martin E. Marty discusses how James' pluralistic view of religion led to his remarkable tolerance of extreme forms of religious behaviour, his challenging, highly original theories, and his welcome lack of pretension in all of his observations on the individual and the divine.

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.
