William James. [A study of his life and philosophy] /

"This book presents the philosophy of William James. In certain men, the personality and the work are inseparable, and James was one. He taught that a philosophy has its root in life, not in the collective or impersonal life of humanity, in his view the abstraction of the schools, but in the concrete life of the individual, the only life which really exists. James thought that philosophy, even in its boldest speculations, should maintain its bond with the soul of the thinker if it is not to degenerate into an empty assemblage of words and of concepts, devoid of all real content. After presenting an account of the life and personality of James, the author presents James's philosophy in 5 fields: psychology, religious psychology, pragmatism, metaphysical views, and pedagogy"--Introduction.

  • "William James (1842-1910) exerça une forte influence intellectuelle, principalement par sa théorie révolutionnaire de l'émotion ; par sa théorie du sentiment de l'effort musculaire ; par sa description du courant de conscience ; par sa défense de l'irréductibilité de l'esprit aux conditions cérébrales fonctionnelles nécessaires à son expression et sa position pragmatique dans le traitement des questions scientifiques et épistémologiques. La vie et l'Ĺ“uvre de James nous sont présentées ici en "perspectives", par l'un de ses collègues français, son contemporain et fervent admirateur."
