A Critical Analysis of William James's Justification of Belief
The aim of this study is to examine William James's justification of belief . . . and several objections that have been made to it. The first part of this paper, therefore, presents James's position; the second part brings forth the objections of his critics and the writer. It is hoped that the conclusion I will show that James's fideism does not meet James's own pragmatic test nor does it satisfy the demands of a truly religious point of view.
