'Is life worth living? Yes, a thousand times yes when the world still holds such spirits as Professor James.' - Gertrude Stein A classic of American thought, William James’ The Varieties of Religious Experience is an extraordinary study of human spirituality in all its forms and one of the most profound works of Psychology ever written. When the book was published in 1902 the study of the human mind was a thrillingly new field of scientific enquiry: James was one of the first to seriously examine the psychology of religious faith and where he led, both Jung and Freud would follow. Yet for all its historical significance, this is a book full of humanity, wit and some deeply personal stories of revelation, religious devotion and mystical experience. The Routledge Classics edition of The Varieties of Religious Experience makes available in paperback for the first time the Centenary Edition published by Routledge in 2002 with new introductions on the historical and contemporary significance of James’ work and a foreword by the author’s grandson, Micky James.

The Best Nonfiction Masterpiece of the 20th Century? “There are two lives, the natural and the spiritual, and we must lose the one before we can participate in the other.” - William James, The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature is not a book about a specific religion. The author, psychologist Williams James does not try to convince the reader one religion is better than the other. He doesn’t even make a case for atheism and the scientific approach. The book is in fact about human nature and how we experience religion at a psychological level. Xist Publishing is a digital-first publisher.

Religi se Erfahrung in der Moderne

Author: Christian Thies
Publisher: Otto Harrassowitz Verlag
ISBN: 3447060131
Release Date: 2009
Genre: Religion

1902 veroffentlichte William James (1842-1910) sein Buch "The Varieties of Religious Experience. A Study on Human Nature"; bereits 1907 erschien die erste deutsche Ubersetzung. Inzwischen kann man sagen, dass dieses Werk fur die Religionsphilosophie eine ahnliche Bedeutung besitzt wie Schleiermachers Reden "Uber die Religion" (1799). Konsequent fragt James danach, wie man unter Bedingungen der Moderne uberhaupt noch religiose Erfahrungen machen kann und welche Relevanz diese fur unser Leben besitzen. Dadurch ergeben sich spannende Vergleichsmoglichkeiten mit anderen Klassikern wie Wittgenstein und Kant, aber auch mit aktuellen Ansatzen zur Rehabilitierung des Heiligen bzw. zur Begrundung einer Neurotheologie. Der Sammelband beruht auf einem Symposium, das im Rahmen der Reihe "Junge Religionsphilosophie" gemeinsam von der Katholischen Akademie Berlin und dem Forschungsinstitut fur Philosophie Hannover veranstaltet wurde.

Genre: Philosophy

Zwischen 1901 und 1914 publizierte Ernst Troeltsch 150 Rezensionen zu Neuerscheinungen in Theologie, Philosophie, Sozialwissenschaften und Kulturgeschichte. Viele dieser häufig an weit entlegenen Orten publizierten Texte waren bisher nicht bekannt. Sie bieten nicht nur faszinierende Einblicke in Troeltschs Denkwerkstatt, sondern erschließen auch neue Perspektiven auf die im Heidelberger Gelehrtenmilieu geführten Debatten über die Kulturbedeutung von Religion und Christentum. Troeltsch rezensierte Texte von James, Simmel und Rickert, schrieb einen großen Nachruf auf seinen Freund Georg Jellinek, nahm an den Methodendebatten der deutschen Historiker intensiv Anteil und entwickelte in Rezensionen das integrative Konzept einer Theologie als Kulturwissenschaft des Christentums.

Between 1901 and 1914, Ernst Troeltsch wrote 150 reviews of new publications in theology, philosophy, the social sciences, and cultural history. Many of these critiques were published in obscure places, and their existence was hitherto unknown. Not only do they offer fasinating insights into Troeltsch’s train of thought, they also open up new perspectives on the debates that Heidelberg intellectual groups engaged in about the cultural meaning of religion and Christianity. Troeltsch reviewed texts by James, Simmel, and Rickert, wrote a major obituary note about his friend Georg Jellinek, avidly participated in the methodological debates of German historians, and developed in his reviews the integrative concept of theology as the cultural science of Christianity.
