When William James went to the University of Edinburgh in 1901 to deliver a series of lectures on "natural religion," he defined religion as "the feelings, acts, and experiences of... More > individual men in their solitude, so far as they apprehend themselves to stand in relation to whatever they may consider the divine." He undertook a project that stands not only as one of the most important texts on psychology ever written, but for many critics one of the best works of nonfiction written in the 20th century.

The word "steak" on a menu merely points to some slab of meat in the back of the restaurant. In a similar way, James posits that all of science is fundamentally detached from reality since the tools of science are merely pointers to some actual objective realm.< Less
