    Tadd Ruetenik (2006). Does a 'Cosmic Consciousness' Exist? Immortality and Ethics in James' Religious Pragmatism. Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 42 (3):417-430.
    : William James' investigation of religious experience neglected consideration of immortality. This was likely because, as James saw it, belief in personal immortality often engenders what can be called spiritual provincialism. In Human Immortality: Two Supposed Objections to the Doctrine (1897/1979), James brings up the phenomenon of psychological overload that occurs when an individual considers the immense numbers of humans who would inhabit Heaven if spiritual merit were determined democratically. Consideration of James' example shows the beginnings of his pragmatic notion (...)

    "William James had always been attracted to interesting women," writes biographer Robert D. Richardson. "Women found him attractive too." He quickly notes that "there has never been so much as a breath of scandal about these friendships. . . . But even if James never ran off for a fling . . . James's women friends were an important part of his life." Yet James was spontaneous and reckless, "a natural philanderer, with a philanderer's lack of interest in settled arrangements" (...)

    The beginning of René Girard’s Violence and the Sacred contains this important explanation of violence:Violence is frequently called irrational. It has its reasons, however, and can marshal some rather convincing ones when the need arises. Yet these reasons cannot be taken seriously, no matter how valid they may appear. Violence itself will discard them if the initial object remains persistently out of reach and continues to provoke hostility. When unappeased, violence seeks and always finds a surrogate victim. The creature that (...)

    Tadd Ruetenik (2012). Another View of Arthur Dimmesdale: Scapegoating and Revelation in The Scarlet Letter. Contagion: Journal of Violence, Mimesis, and Culture 19 (1):69-86.
    Near the end of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, the Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale stands on the scaffold of shame and tears away his shirt to reveal something to the community. The narrator exclaims: “It was revealed! But it were irreverent to describe that revelation.”1 The actual manner in which this revelation is manifest is hidden, allowing readers to fill in the details. What is presumed, however, is that there indeed was some mark on the minister’s chest, and the narrator provides (...)
