To what extent do we “believe” in or about the magical world created in the Potter story (and others)?

Please read the article I attached and write 150-200 words showing how it is related to something from any Harry Potter Book. Please try to make the relation something Philosophical.
Bear in Mind as You Read:
How does James distinguish among different kinds of choices? (live, forced, momentous, etc)?
Consider James’ argument for it being permissible and rational to will or choose to believe something given the type of choice it is AND what hinges on it
In what circumstances does James think this is appropriate and/or important?
What difference does or can voluntary believing (in the absence of answers) make?
Relate James’ argument to Harry’s choice to believe in Dumbledore and his mission, and other aspects of his prior development that seem to be “choices to believe”
What significance does it have that Harry finds belief in burying Dobby?
