James studied religion from a scientific philosophical perspective. This was a very interesting book.

i only read a little bit of this book for a class, but it was... well, it's a fairly difficult read, because the author tends to go off on tangents every once in a while, but if you're good at ignoring that kind of thing it is quite educational.

Though this book is pretty cut and dry, it is full of interesting information, ideas, and opinions. I thought William James did a wonderful job researching the subject for each lecture and presenting them too. That said I fell asleep more than once will reading the book and ended up downloading the audiobook so I could do other things while "reading" it.
