Anyway, William James is great, and this book was great for the most part, especially Pragmatism.

A long while ago, The Varieties Of Religious Experience made a pretty big impression on me. This guy has left its mark as well. almost all of his good stuff is written lectures, so there's an oratorical flair about it. At the same time, though, Pragmatism (the first set of lectures here) and Varieties both have a good literary arc to them, they're whole works. Anyway, William James is great, and this book was great for the most part, especially Pragmatism.

It 'bakes no bread,' as has been said, but it can inspire our souls with courage; and repugnant as its manners, its doubting and challenging, its quibbling and dialectics, often are to common people, no one of us can get along without the far-flashing beams of light it sends over the world's perspectives.

Harvard University Press, 1 мар. 1974 г. 0 Отзывы. William James, oldest of five children (including Henry James and Alice James) in the extraordinary James family, was born in New York City on January 11, 1842. He has had a far-reaching influence on writers and thinkers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Broadly educated by private tutors and through European travel, James initially studied painting. During the Civil War, however, he turned to medicine and physiology, attended Harvard medical school, and became interested in the workings of the mind.

William James (January 11, 1842 – August 26, 1910) was an American philosopher and psychologist, and the first educator to offer a psychology course in the United States

William James (January 11, 1842 – August 26, 1910) was an American philosopher and psychologist, and the first educator to offer a psychology course in the United States. James is considered to be a leading thinker of the late nineteenth century, one of the most influential philosophers of the United States, and the "Father of American psychology".

The writings of William James represent one of America's most original contributions to the history of ideas. Ranging from philosophy and psychology to religion and politics, James composed the most engaging formulation of American pragmatism. Pragmatism' grew out of a set of lectures and the full text is included here along with 'The Meaning of Truth', 'Psychology', 'The Will to Believe', and 'Talks to Teachers on Psychology'. Format Paperback 400 pages. Dimensions 133 x 197 x 18mm 278g.

Noted psychologist and philosopher develops his own brand of pragmatism, based on theories of C. S. Peirce

A profoundly influential figure in American psychology, William James (1842–1910) was also a philosopher of note, who used Charles S. Peirce's theories of pragmatism as a basis for his own conception of that influential philosophy.

Pragmatism, in William James' eyes, was that the truth of an idea needed to be tested to prove its validity. This book is composed of a set of lectures delivered at the Lowell Institute in Boston and at Columbia University, NY.

Truly a brilliant work of philosophy that is too often ignored in modern American philosophy. If the truth is what works, then this book is full of truths.

Almost anything written by James is worth reading. The idea here is not "apply" anything in a very modern fashion. The journey is the reward. You just want to be beside him while he is thinking.

The bastardization of the term "pragmatism" is most unfortunate, and thus this book is certainly worthwhile reading, even for sophisticated students of philosophy, if only to disabuse them of certain widely-held misunderstandings of the approach.
OK
