Varieties of Religion Today: William James Revisited

Charles Taylor, Author Harvard University Press $19.95 (142p) ISBN 978-0-674-00760-4
In the early 20th century, Harvard sociologist William James delivered a series of lectures in Edinburgh that were eventually put together in book form as The Varieties of Religious Experience, still in print today. A century later, philosophy professor Charles Taylor spoke for the same lecture series, revisiting James's work for a postmodern audience. His Varieties of Religion Today is a provocative, witty and worthy conversation with James's timeless work. (Mar.)
