Drawing upon the works of William James and the principles of American Pragmatism, Eugene Fontinell addresses the question of whether or not we who have been affected by the scientific, intellectual, and experimental revolutions of modern and contemporary times still hold a coherent and consistent belief in an immortality for individual human beings. Self, God, And Immortality: A Jamesian Investigation also examines the present relationship of reason to faith -- and if there are justifying reasons for faith. Fontinell shows that, far from diverting attention and energies from the crucial tasks confronting us here and now, belief in a personal immortality can be energizing and life enhancing, as well as stimulating co-operative efforts to create a richer and more humane community. Self, God, And Immortality is emphatically recommended reading for students of religion, spirituality, philosophy, and metaphysics.
