Pippin claims that James is engaged in a distinctive kind of original thinking and reflecting on modern moral life in his novels and short stories." "Pippin further contends that James, in his sensitivity to the precarious and confusing situation of moral understanding in modern societies, both avoids skepticism and powerfully presents the nature of moral claims and dependence." "Professor Pippin offers new interpretations of Portrait of a Lady, The Wings of the Dove, The Ambassadors, The Golden Bowl, and several of James's short stories, including The Beast in the Jungle and The Turn of the Screw, to support his case for James's moral philosophy."--Jacket." ;
