Review: The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature (Bedford Series in History & Culture)

User Review  - Noah Posthuma - Goodreads

This was an endeavor, as I rarely read nonfiction that isn't architecture or art-related. Also, that it's simply a series of lectures from over 100 years ago. Still it was quite personal, and I think ... Read full review

Rarely do I read a book a second time, but this is now the third time I've read this one, and it's still fresh and relevant. Read full review

Review: The Varieties of Religious Experience (Bedford Series in History & Culture)

User Review  - Aneece - Goodreads

Better writer than his brother? Better shrink than Frued? Better philosopher than Hegel? The answer to all these questions is "no". But doesn't it blow your mind that I could even ask such questions, man? Read full review

Review: The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature (Bedford Series in History & Culture)

User Review  - Bryn Hammond - Goodreads

I still haven't read this cover to cover but it's a work of art. As a student I targeted the section on drunkenness -- a lyrical description I haven't seen bettered. But don't trust my memory. I was a drunken student. Read full review

User Review  - Kenny - Goodreads

Extremely theoretical despite William James's professed association with pragmatist school of thought. His peripatetic thinking style and unwillingness to commit, and famous indecisive personality is on full display. Read full review

Review: The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature (Bedford Series in History & Culture)

User Review  - Chris Marquette - Goodreads

Interesting, albeit dry at times. I think the subject matter is a little shaky. James bases a lot of his theories on pretty vague religious experiences. It's impossible to know if any of his sources ... Read full review

Read part but got a little bogged down in it. Read full review

Review: The Varieties of Religious Experience (Bedford Series in History & Culture)

User Review  - Adih Respati - Goodreads

I was very much looking forward to reading James' Varieties, so when found one I took a read in an instant. But the book isn't as daring as I thought it would be. James' words on atheism are political ... Read full review
