Demonstrates convincingly the extent to which James's psychological and philosophical perspectives also continue to be a rich resource for those specifically interested in the study of mysticism. A critically-sophisticated, yet gripping, immersion into the inner worlds of one of America's foremost thinkers.

Book News
Goes beyond the usual study of the American psychologist and philosopher James' (1842-1910) classic Varieties of Religious Experience to connect the ideas on mysticism there with his other, less-well-known investigations of the mystical states of awareness. Also explores how his insights can inform the modern understanding of mysticism. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
