Overview
Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best nonfiction books of all time
"The Varieties of Religious Experience" was an immediate bestseller upon its publication in June 1902. Reflecting the pluralistic views of psychologist turned philosopher William James, it posits that individual religious experiences, rather than the tenets of organized religions, form the backbone of religious life. James's discussion of conversion, repentance, mysticism, and hope of reward and fears of punishment in the hereafter--as well as his observations on the religious experiences of such diverse thinkers as Voltaire, Emerson, Luther, and others--all support his thesis. Walter Houston Clark in "Psychology Today" deemed it "the most notable of all books in the field of the psychology of religion."
