The Geography of Religious Experience

Regular readers know of my fondness for William James. James was the greatest American psychologist and he wrote the seminal work in my area of research, the psychology of religion. For more, see my recent series on James in the sidebar.

My good friend Kyle alerted me to this excellent article on James in a recent edition of the New York Times: The Geography of Religious Experience.
