The Varieties of Religious Experience

William James
Edited by Matthew Bradley

Oxford World's Classics

  • The most critically up-to-date and inclusive edition of this classic survey of religious belief, embracing the interdisciplinary nature of a work that fuses philosophy, psychology, religion, and literary studies, and emphasizing its wide appeal.
  • James's work is more relevant than ever in its consideration of the effect of religious ideas on daily life, and atheists who attack religion with 'religious zeal'.
  • Introduction stresses the book's significance in the relationship between religion and culture, instituting a new approach to religious belief, discusses its ideas and their contemporary interest, as well as contextualizing the book within James's biographical, intellectual, and literary background.
  • Explanatory notes identify key figures and contexts, and provides links with James's other work.
  • Includes a completely updated index, expanded and corrected from the original index provided by Joyce in 1902.
