Oliver L. Reiser (1895-1974), b. Columbus, OH; philosophy teacher and professor, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh. He was a friend of Albert Einstein, who wrote a recommendation for Reiser's book World Philosophy: A Search for Synthesis. Reiser was also an advocate of psychic phenomena and the paranormal.

"Our argument is based on the proposition that religion, today, definitely presents a social problem. Churches as institutions, and theologies as systems of belief, are out of harmony with each other." The author predicts that the religion of the future will be a kind of pantheism.
