This is a very important collection of texts on William James' work. Particularly, texts on pragmatism and monism that represent the hard core of William James' philosophy.

William James remains our greatest and most original philosopher, as well as a great psychologist and scholar of religion. Together, James and Mark Twain made the world take notice of us as serious intellectual and artistic contenders. While James never had much chance to pull the many threads of his philosophy together, the writings in this volume show much of what was at the core of his thought.

His style is outstanding, one reason he and brother Henry were aptly and jointly described as the novelist who is a psychologist and the psychologist who is a novelist. I find it helpful to read James as if he and I were in fluent conversation; that way, the great lecturer and conversationalist come to the fore, transcending most other 19th Century prose.

A solid foundation of philosophy for psychology students and professionals. Much of his work has been corroborated via modern scientific investigation.

I do not really care for the pragmatism, it really took a great effort to actually get into this book. It was purchased for a class so it did fulfill it's purpose and it arrived before estimated arrival time which is always a plus for text books.

The seller had the item shipped in plastic which was excellent for me because it ended up in the rain for a day.
