Abstract:

In the article the question of religious experience combined with the problem of pragmatic philosophy of William James has been undertaken. The aim of the article is the attempt of (re)cognition of pragmatics and con-sequences of religious experience for the practice of everyday life of postmodern societies. The arguments and final conclusions presented in the text have been formulated on the basis of the chosen features of religious individualities, which characterize those who experience religiously. In the conclusion it has been assessed that religious experiences are pragmatic because of consequences which they exert on the feeling of those who experience religiously. Two types of consequences of believing in a deity have been distinguished – the dysfunctional and the functional. Conclusions have been formulated for religious upbringing and pedagogy of everyday life.
