CRN: 7122

Credits: 2

William James' Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature (1901) is a classic in the study of religion for a reason. Path breaking when it appeared for its democratic inclusion of the "religion of healthy mindedness," melancholia, experiences of intoxication, mysticism and even the lives of saints, Varieties has continued to inspire and instruct, influencing everything from the Twelve-Step movement to today's "spiritual but not religious." Anchored in a pragmatic psychology and open to the mysteries of a "pluralistic universe," James' work takes us deep into the heart of individual experience while also exploring the challenges of bridging different experiences and learning from them.
