Being the Gifford Lectures on Natural Religion Delivered in Edinburgh br I am neither a theologian nor a scholar learned in the history of religions nor an anthropologist Psychology is the only branch of learning in which I am particularly versed To the psychologist the religious propensities of man must be at least as interesting as any other of the facts pertaining to his mental constitution It would seem therefore as a psychologist the natural thing for me would be to invite you to a descriptive survey of those religious propensities br When Wm James went to the University of Edinburgh to deliver a lecture series on natural religion he defined religion as the feelings acts amp experiences of individual men in their solitude so far as they apprehend themselves to stand in relation to whatever they may consider the divine Considering religion then not as it s defined by or takes place in the churches but as it s felt in everyday life he undertook a project that upon completion stands not only as one of the most important texts on psychology not only as a vitally serious contemplation of spirituality but for many one of the best works of nonfiction written in the th century Reading i The Varieties of Religious Experience i it s easy to see why Applying his analytic clarity to religious accounts from various sources he elaborates a pluralistic framework in which the divine can mean no single quality it must mean a group of qualities by being champions of which in alternation different men may all find worthy missions It s an intellectual call for serious religious tolerance indeed respect the vitality of which remains undiminished, Volume of the famous long course complete and unabridged Covers stream of thought time perception memory and experimental methods Total in set figures, No description available, The work of William James contributed greatly to the burgeoning fields of psychology particularly in the areas of education religion mysticism and pragmatism The brother of novelist Henry James and of diarist Alice James William wrote several powerful essays expressing his ideas on the pragmatic theory of truth sentience and human beings right to believe In The Will to Believe James suggests that what a person holds to be true or attainable may exist through that person s belief in them regardless of a lack of physical evidence In a sense he advocates the theory of self fulfilling prophesies Human Immortality was a speech delivered during the annual Ingersoll Lectureship given in memory of George Goldthwait Ingersoll in at Harvard University These works are a prime example of the powerful influence William James has had on modern psychology and are still recognized today for their brilliance and revolutionary impacts on the field
