Varieties of Religious Experience by William James

Book Description

James' masterful treatise on the psychology of individual religious experience was originally composed for the prestigious Gifford Lectures delivered at Edinburgh University in 1901-1902. Emphasising subjective religious experience in its many guises, as opposed to the distinctions among specific creeds or theologies, this trenchant exploration of the religious imagination is still unsurpassed as an overview of the human belief in a transcendent reality, whether personalised as God or viewed impersonally as some higher spiritual reality. As such James' study is relevant to any religious context, whether Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, 'New Age', or any other. James concludes that religious experience is real insofar as it produces real effects on peoples' lives and characters, and therefore it can and should be the subject of serious scientific inquiry.

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.
