According to the classical doctrines, the mind is furnished by “ideas” that form the building blocks of knowledge. For Lockean empiricism, ideas derive from perceptual “impressions,” or as more recent empiricism puts it, “sensory data,” that can be picked out and thematised by sober, disengaged philosophical-scientific reflection. Although Descartes had a different, more intellectualist view of the source of these ideas, he too thought of mental contents as neutral, self-contained units of information which, when suitably processed, could yield objective knowledge of the world.

Taylor identifies an awareness of this cross-pressure, of this fragilisation of belief as he calls it,25 in James’s work and admires greatly this aspect of James’s analysis of religion. As Taylor says, James . . tells us more than anyone else what it’s like to stand in that open space and feel the winds pulling you now here, now there. He describes a crucial site of modernity and articulates the decisive drama enacted there. It took very exceptional qualities to do this. . xml CY290B/Abbey 0 521 80136 2 October 6, 2003 Introduction: The Thought of Charles Taylor 16:32 23 but rather embraced as an enrichment of the self, Taylor pulls away.
