Psychology by William James

Book Description

Today's scholars know James's psychology primarily through his great "Principles of Psychology" (1890), but those who studied the subject at the turn of the century were more apt to learn his view through his "Psychology: Briefer Course" (1892). Indeed, professors at colleges and universities throughout the United States use this book--which their students labeled "Jimmy" to distinguish it from the larger "James"--in their classes, and more than six times as many copies of the "Briefer Course" were sold by 1902 as were sets of "Principles."Despite its title, the "Briefer Course" is more than a simple condensation of the larger work. For example, to the material from "Principles" James added several chapters on the physiology of the senses that helped mesh his psychology with the other sciences of the period. The earlier chapter title "The Stream of Thought" is replaced here with "The Stream of Consciousness." "Psychology: Briefer Course" remains a useful and highly readable introduction to James's views on psychology and is an essential source for anyone interested in studying all of his psychological writings.

Pragmatism by William James Pragmatism, Paperback (February 2015)

The word pragmatism is used everywhere today, from business to sports to politics. Written in an engaging and accessible style, this title offers a corrective to modern uses of the word, since the voice that speaks in its pages embodies precisely the opposite values from the pejorative semes the word has acquired.

Will to Believe by William James Will to Believe, Paperback (June 2013)

Philosopher William James posits pragmatic grounds for religious belief and moral action in these ten essays, published together in 1897.
