Meet the Author

William James (1842-1910) was the elder brother of the novelist Henry James and a key figure in American philosophy and psychology. His best known and most influential work, still quite readable today, is The Varieties of Religious Experience (1902), which approaches the subject of religion from a scientific, psychological—yet refreshingly open-minded—standpoint.
