He also spent approximately fifteen years as the student of Ayatulla Bahjat in fiqh. After his formal studies with Imam Khomeini were put to an end by the latter's exile, he spent some years engaged in discussions about social significance of Islam, including discussions about jihad, judicature and Islamic government.

James, who called his way "radical empiricism," differed with other empiricists about how to determine the realm of experience. In addition to outward sensory experience, he included psychological and religious experience. He considered religious beliefs, especially the belief in the power and mercy of God, to be useful for mental health, and for this very reason, true. He himself suffered a mental breakdown at the age of twenty-nine, was cured due to his attention to God, and His Mercy and Power to change man's destiny.
