William James presented his Gifford Lectures on The Varieties of Religious Experience in Edinburgh in 1901–1902. As concrete states of mind, made up of a feeling plus a specific sort of object, religious emotions are psychic entities distinguishable from other concrete emotions—although there is no ground to assume a uniform sense of religious emotion. To the extent it persisted, religious belief—rather than finding the sacred in the world—now construed it as a transcendent principle, relegating God to the role of a distant “designer” or architect of the world.

Keywords:   Edinburgh, psychic, emotions, distant designer, architect
