    All this proves is that he wasn't a conscious source for James' perspective, which is uncontentious
    and irrelevant. Indeed, the whole point is that Schleiermacher's perspective and understanding of
    mysticism was the 'received wisdom', the common sense of James' culture - as it still is, in some
    circles. If you care to read the Jantzen (or have a look at my essay, and engage with that) then
    you'll get the information you seek.
