Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
'The Varieties of Religious Experience is certainly the most notable of all books in the field of the psychology of religion and probably destined to be the most influential one written on religion in the twentieth century.'- Walter Houston Clark in Psychology Today

Review:
"The 'Varieties' has probably been, over the years, James's most popular book, read even after his functionalist psychology was superseded by behaviorism and when his pragmatist philosophy was in eclipse. It is composed primarily of case histories, collected from all around the world and organized by category....[I]t looks, it in other words, like a psychology textbook, and that is because it is a psychology textbook. The 'Varieties' is not a study of religion; it is, as the subtitle states, 'a study in human nature.'"

Jaroslav Pelikan

Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1983. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed. 196 x 128 mm. Brand New Book. 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.
