Bruce Johnson, also known as C. Bruce Johnson, is an American TV news anchorman and reporter for WUSA 9 (CBS) TV in Washington, . Politics and Urban Affairs, Investigative and hard-hitting feature stories are his expertise. His personal story includes never knowing his natural father, studying to become a priest, and being the first in his family to graduate college. His mother later earned her degree at age 52.

Bruce Johnson, a renown essay critic, stated that Conrad’s examination of the ambiguity of good and evil is generally considered too stylized and heavy-handed. Conrad produced thirteen novels, tow volumes of memoirs, and twenty-eight short stories, athough writing was not easy or painless for him (Johnson 11). In most of Conrad’s writings his outlook is bleak.

In a new approach to understanding the psychological assumptions that lie behind the creation of a work of fiction, Professor Johnson analyzes a number of Joseph Conrad's novels and short stories, identifying and explaining Conrad's changing conceptions or models of mind. As he points out in his introduction: "Every writer makes assumptions about the nature of the mind, whether they may be elaborate theories, metaphors that seem simple but imply a great deal, downright beliefs, or vague gestalten. And such assumptions color his whole creation, the way his characters think and feel and react, possibly even his choice of subject matter."

The author traces Conrad's steady progression away from deductive psychology, involving such entities as will, passion, ego, or sympathy, toward a flexible, and, for the period, new psychology that had implications for his entire development as a writer.

Professor Johnson finds certain affinities between Conrad's models of mind and those of a number of other writers, among them, Schopenhauer, Sartre, and Pascal. He shows that one aspect of Conrad's psychology was closely allied to the Schopenhauerian concept of will but that when he wrote Lord Jim, Heart of Darkness, and Nostromo Conrad moved toward an existential concept of self-image and self-creation similar to Sartre's psychology in Being and Nothingness. Finally, Professor Johnson examines Conrad's novel The Rescue and shows how hopeless it was for Conrad to return to earlier conceptions of mind after he had explored the new existential models.
