This contains James' most famous work, "The Varieties of Religious Experience". It is worth buying this volume for this book alone. It also contains "Pragmatism", and its sequel "A Pluralistic Universe". Taken as a whole this collection is long and daunting. James is the most readable philosopher I have come across though. He is not afraid of doing dialectic battle with his contemporaries. All the end notes are helpful in this edition, if you lack a background in Latin, French, or German. James quotes many passages in those 3 languages. All in all a great collection of classic American philosophy
