William James's "Springs of Delight": The Return to Life

Front Cover
Vanderbilt University Press, 2001 - Philosophy - 256 pages
0 Reviews
This enterprising book, written in the spirit of William James, urges our appreciation of the intensely personal character of spiritual transcendence. Phil Oliver's work has important implications for specialists concerned with the Jamesian concept of "pure experience," and it illuminates significant interdisciplinary ties among philosophy, literature, and other intellectual domains.
