Notes

First edition of James's thought-provoking essay on the nature of human immortality with reference to both modern science and mysticism. It first appeared as a lecture of the same name which James delivered as his Ingersoll Lecture on Immortality at Harvard the previous year. Houghton Mifflin published the lectures annually from 1896 to 1912; James was the second lecturer to speak in the series, preceded only by church minister George A. Gordon.
