The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature is a book by the Harvard psychologist and philosopher William James comprising 20 lectures given at the University of Edinburgh in... More > Scotland. These lectures concerned the nature of religion and the neglect of science, in James' view, in the academic study of religion.
