Editorial Reviews


"Slater argues forcefully...[producing] a careful analysis of truth."
-Bob Lane, metapsychology.net

"Michael Slater has written a valuable, thorough, and thought-provoking book about William James's views on ethics, religious faith, and the mutually-dependent relations between them... This book is well worth reading for its insights into James and the immensity of the task James set for himself, as well as for its demonstration of, and attempt to resolve, a mass of seemingly contradictory tendencies in James's philosophy... brings out some of the richest aspects of James's philosophy and the enigmas it presents... do not skip over the footnotes -- they are often very rich."
-Ellen Kappy Suckiel, University of California, Santa Cruz, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"...helpful in explaining of the current terms of analytic moral philosophy, and he places James's "The Moral Philosopher and the Moral Life" within analytic moral philosophy...."
-Ellen Kappy Suckiel, University of California, Santa Cruz, American Journal of Theology and Philosophy

Book Description

This book offers a new interpretation of William James's ethical and religious thought. Michael Slater shows that James's conception of morality, or what it means to lead a moral and flourishing life, is intimately tied to his conception of religious faith.
