The Will to Believe addresses several of the most important and perplexing problems of philosophy. In ten lucid essays James deals with such subjects as causality and free will, the definition of the good life and the Good itself, the importance of the individual in society, and the intellectual claims of scientific method. Linking all these essays, most of which were delivered as lectures to popular audiences, is James's deep belief that philosophy does not operate in a vacuum but is influenced by our passional and volitional natures.As Edward H. Madden points out in his substantial introduction, these essays, written over a span of seventeen years, represent not so much a fixed system of ideas as a patient searching, an organic development of James's thought in response to his own criticism and that of others.This is the sixth volume to be published in The Works of William James, an authoritative edition sponsored by the American Council of Learned Societies.… (mais)

Hoe moet je leven?
Voor de meeste mensen is dat een vraag waarvan de volle reikwijdte langzaam maar zeker tot hen doordringt. Voor William James (1842-1910) was het een opdracht waarmee hij de wereld ingestuurd werd.
IN DE WIL OM TE GELOVEN eist William James een geestelijk terrein op voor de menselijke geloofservaring dat zich onttrekt aan iedere rationele bewijsvoering. Iemands geloof wordt eenvoudig gerechtvaardigd door zijn behoefte aan een geloof.
James radicale solidariteitsbetuigingen aan de menselijke ervaring maakten van hem tijdens de jaren dat hij aan Harvard doceerde tot een populaire figuur, een filosoof voor gewone mensen.
WAT WILLIAM JAMES ook tegenwoordig nog, of misschien juíst tegenwoordig, nog tot zo¿n aansprekende figuur maakt, iemand die we niet los kunnen laten, is zijn aanhoudende pleidooi voor de kracht van de verbeelding in het leven zelf. Wil het leven leefbaar zijn, dan moet de menselijke geest de vrijheid hebben het van binnen uit te vormen alsof het een eigen kunstwerk is, met alle irrationele tegenstrijdigheden van dien. Geloof en bijgeloof, rede en illusie, idealisme en ironie kunnen in zo¿n leven naast elkaar bestaan zonder dat het op een mentale burgeroorlog uitdraait.
Kaleidoscopisch als zo¿n leven is, vormt het het beste weermiddel tegen fundamentalisme, of dat nu religious, politiek of wetenschappelijk is. Bas Heijne in NRC

Recensie door Dr. T.A. Smedes

Een mooi verzorgde vertaling van een aantal klassieke essays van de Amerikaanse pragmatistische filosoof William James (1842-1910) die cirkelen rondom religieus geloof. James betoogt dat het een recht van ieder individu is om op eigen risico te geloven. Wetenschap en filosofie zouden dit recht moeten erkennen, en niet moeten proberen met behulp van naturalistische verklaringen de ervaringen van gelovigen te ontluisteren. Naast een vertaling van 'De wil om te geloven' zijn in deze bundel ook opgenomen 'Is het leven de moeite waard?', 'Het gevoel van rationaliteit', 'Reflexhandling en theïsme' en 'Religieus vertrouwen en het recht om te geloven'. James' essays verschijnen voor het eerst in Nederlandse vertaling. Een essay van Peter Sloterdijk fungeert als voorwoord, en een zeer leesbaar essay van Hein van Dongen is als nawoord opgenomen. Tevens zijn er een (beknopte) begrippenlijst en register. ( )

This book consists of ten essays on various subjects relating to philosophy, religion, and spirituality. Before I started the book I knew I would have to work to get through this kind of subject matter, and I really did have to put in a lot of effort. I realize that he was writing for an audience of academics, but he could have simplified things a bit more for the rest of us. As far as the content goes, sometimes I agree with what he's saying, sometimes I disagree with what he's saying, and sometimes I don't understand what he's saying. Some of the essays were better than others, but on the whole, The Varieties of Religious Experience is probably James' best book, and I would recommend starting with that one if you're interested.
