Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Taylor's purpose in this work is to show that, contrary to the generally accepted notion that James abandoned psychology after the publication in 1890 of his Principles of Psychology, he merely rejected academic laboratory psychology. Taylor traces James's thinking from the initial descriptive empiricism of the Principles to the radical empiricism of his later years. In this final metaphysics, James rejected the subject-object dichotomy in favor of what he described as the "pure experience," which precedes intellectualization. Taylor argues convincingly that throughout his life James was concerned with the totality of human experience, of which waking consciousness is but one aspect. Taylor concludes that the implications of James's person-centered, humanistic thought can bridge the gap between experimental and clinical psychology. For academic collections in psychology and philosophy.?Leon H. Brody, U.S. Office of Personnel Mgt. Lib., Washington, D.C

Review

"Taylor argues convincingly that throughout his life James was concerned with the totality of human experience, of which waking consciousness is but one aspect. Taylor concludes that the implications of James's person-centered, humanistic thought can bridge the gap between experimental and clinical psychology."--Library Journal



"While James did fight labels all his life, he also created labels for the niches from which he could do strategic work. Taylor's patient examinations help us see that William James was both a hedgehog and a fox. . . . Taylor's method of sticking with primary, often overlooked, texts proves itself adequate to casting new light on James, a goal often publicized but rarely achieved."--Tom D'Evelyn, Boston Book Review
