Wittgenstein and William James by Russell B. Goodman
Book DescriptionThis 2002 book explores Wittgenstein's long engagement with the work of the pragmatist William James. In contrast to previous discussions Russell Goodman argues that James exerted a distinctive and pervasive positive influence on Wittgenstein's thought. For example, the book shows that the two philosophers share commitments to anti-foundationalism, to the description of the concrete details of human experience, to the priority of practice over intellect, and to the importance of religion in understanding human life. Considering in detail what Wittgenstein learnt from his reading of Principles of Psychology and Varieties of Religious Experience the author provides considerable evidence for Wittgenstein's claim that he is saying 'something that sounds like pragmatism'. This provocative account of the convergence in the thinking of two major philosophers usually considered as members of discrete traditions will be eagerly sought by students of Wittgenstein, William James, pragmatism and the history of twentieth-century philosophy.

Books By Author Russell B. Goodman
American Philosophy Before Pragmatism, Hardback (July 2015)
Russell Goodman tells the story of the development of philosophy in America from the mid-18th century to the late 19th century. The key figures, including Franklin, Jefferson, Emerson, and Thoreau, were not professors but men of the world, whose deep influence on American thought brought philosophy together with religion, politics, and literature.
American Philosophy and the Romantic Tradition, Paperback (July 2008)
Russell Goodman expands on the revisionist position developed by Stanley Cavell, that the most interesting strain of American thought proceeds from a peculiarly American kind of Romanticism.
Contending with Stanley Cavell, Hardback (April 2005)
Stanley Cavell has been a brilliant, idiosyncratic presence in American philosophy literary criticism, and cultural studies for years. This collection illustrates the variety of Cavell's interests: in the ordinary language philosophy of Wittgenstein and Austin, in film criticism and theory, in literature, psychoanaylsis, and others.
