The Varieties of Religious Experience

by William James

The Varieties of Religious Experience

William James

Overview

What do you think of when you hear the word religion? Maybe you don't associate with any particular system of beliefs. Or perhaps you consider yourself an atheist. Interestingly, a 2012 article in the Washington Post identifies that 8 out of 10 people were still affiliated with a religious group at that time.

Similar to politics or any form of belief system, religion has been an integral part of human history. But what happens when you take away the churches and the dogma that surrounds much of religious belief?

What about what happens on the deeper, personal level to individuals who have religious experiences? That's exactly the kind of question that The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study In Human Nature tackles - an insight into the psychological aspect of religious experiences. William James is widely known as the 'Father of American Psychology' for his work on human behavior and philosophy. This book was written based on a series of lectures given by James back in the early 1900s.
