About the Author

Robert J. O'Connell, S.J., was Professor of Philosophy at Fordham University.


"A thorough and sympathetic analysis of James' lecture on "The Will to Believe," a lecture which-once read-"does not admit of being easily left aside." O'Connell takes on those critics who have reckless "wishful thinking." Central to O'Connell's approach is his very helpful treatment of the "passional side of human nature" and the role it plays in James' epistemology. It is not merely an element to be brought in when the intellect has reached an impasse. A valuable and important book" - American Journal of Theology & Philosophy
