Some Problems in Philosophy by William James

Book Description

"Some Problems of Philosophy," William James's last book, was published after his death in 1910. For years he had talked of rounding out his philosophical work with a treatise on metaphysics. Characteristically, he chose to do so in the form of an introduction to the problems of philosophy, because writing for beginners would force him to be nontechnical and readable. The result is that, although this is James's most systematic and abstract work, it has all the lucidity of his other, more popular writings. Step by step the reader is introduced, through analysis of the fundamental problems of Being, the relation of thoughts to things, novelty, causation, and the Infinite, to the original philosophical synthesis that James called radical empiricism.This is the seventh volume to be published in The Works of William James, an authoritative edition sponsored by the American Council of Learned Societies.

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.
