9780252063923: William James, Public Philosopher

"Cotkin provides a gracefully written and consistently intelligent defense of James and pragmatism that deserves a wide audience among intellectual historians and their students."--Robert C. Bannister, American Historical Review.

From Library Journal:

Cotkin (history, California Polytechnic State Univ.) provides a fair and succinct portrait of the founder of modern psychology. James's intellectual, professional, and personal lifelines are traced within the context of American political and social spheres, beginning with the Civil War. Cotkin's work, an excellent example of the interdisciplinary approach to American studies, offers useful insight into the personal groundwork on which American Pragmatism was built. Glosses of James's major works--both as they were received in his time and now--round out this study. For all academic libraries and as many public ones as can afford the notably steep price.
