9781605204277: The Meaning of Truth

Why is real-world experience vital to a mature appreciation of any philosophical system? Why is the search for “objective truth” a trickier proposition than it seems at first glance? American psychologist and philosopher WILLIAM JAMES (1842–1910), brother of novelist Henry James, was a groundbreaking researcher at Harvard University, author of such works as Principles of Psychology (1890) and The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature (1902), and one of the most influential academics of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Here, in a series of essays first published in book form in 1909, and considered a sequel to his series of lectures collected in Pragmatism (also available from Cosimo), James explores these questions as he discusses: · the function of cognition · humanism and truth · the relation between knower and known · the essence of humanism · the meaning of the word truth · the absolute and strenuous life · and more.
