The Varieties of Religious Experience
William James


First-rate study of spirituality documents and discusses a variety of religious states of consciousness, covering the meaning of the term “divine,” reality of the unseen, religion of healthy-mindedness, sick soul, divided self and process of its unification, conversion, saintliness, and mysticism. Studded with richly concrete examples; a classic of its genre.

This is an unabridged republication of the second edition of The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature, originally published by Longmans, Green and Co., New York, 1902.
