Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Biography in 1936
This out- of-print classic returns, in a new paperback edition, through the Vanderbilt Library of American Philosophy. Designed to serve as both a systematic account of James's development and a repository of selections from his unpublished writings, the one-volume work (which forms the basis for this new paperback edition) offers a brief and convenient sourcebook of James's thought, set forth in terms that require no previous familiarity with technical problems of philosophy and psychology.
About the Author
Ralph Barton Perry (1876-1957) was long associated with the outstanding philosophy department at Harvard, as student and professor, during its heyday. He was the author of nearly two dozen books, among which Puritanism and Democracy and several others are still in print. Charlene Haddock Seigfried, Professor of Philosophy and American Studies at Purdue University and President of the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy, is the author of two previous books on William James: William James's Radical Reconstructionism of Philosophy and Chaos and Context: A Study in William James.
