Religious doctrine is parasitic on speciﬁc experiences directly connected to feeling and conduct,such as voices and visions, responses to prayer, changes of heart, deliverances from fear, assurances of support, and redirection of internal attitudes.
If James had allowed, with Nietzsche, that the various moral orders to which his sources testify are the products of history, he would have enriched his pluralist account and prepared the way for a better understanding of religious beliefs and practices.

James returns to this issue. 28 Both “higher part of himself” and “operative in the universe outside of him” are ambiguous.
