This antiquarian book contains William James’s 1898 lecture, "Human Immortality". This fascinating lecture was given under the auspices of the 'The Ingersoll Lectureship', a scheme founded upon the wishes of Miss Caroline Haskell Ingersoll who gave 5000 dollars to Harvard University with the instructions that 'a series of lectures were to be read annually on the topic of human immortality' - in memory of her father. An enthralling treatise on the possibility of conscious immortality, this antiquarian text will appeal to those interested in the topic, and would make for a worthy addition collections of allied literature. William James (1842 - 1910) was an American psychologist and philosopher. Originally published in 1898, this rare text is being republished now in an affordable, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
