William James's theory of religious knowledge.
MetadataShow full item record
Inasmuch as the purpose of this thesis is to give an account of William James's theory of religious knowledge, the scope is limited to his epistemology in so far as it deals with his conception of religion. Accordingly, the method used is first that of depiction and then of evaluation of this view. James's talented family, his wide and varied education, his extensive traveling and reading, his teaching career, and his broad philosophical background all combined to produce that breadth of outlook and genuine sensitiveness of spirit that characterizes his personality. He wrote numerous articles and volumes, the most outstanding one for the purposes of this thesis being his Varieties. [TRUNCATED]
