Philosopher, psychologist, educator, and author William James ranked among the most influential figures of his time. James played a prominent role in the transition from a predominantly European-centered nineteenth century philosophy to a new pragmatic American philosophy. One of his chief contributions lay in his seminal 1907 work, Pragmatism, which featured a controversial chapter on "truth." In response to his critics- most of whom had misunderstood his thesis - James wrote The meaning of Truth, a synthesis of everything he had ever written on the theory of knowledge, including and article on the function of cognition, later polemic and expository contributions and some replies to previous criticism

This volume contains the complete texts of two books by America's most important psychologust and philospher. Easy to understand, yet, brilliant and penetrating, the books were written specifically for laymen and they are still stimulating reading for readers concerned with important questions of belief in an age of science. Human Immorality: Two supposed Objections to the Doctrine, reprinted here from the corrected second edition, examines the questions of survival after death, and provides an unusual philosophical rebuttal to the theory that thought and personality necesscarily die with the brain

"Several members of the Transcendentalists begin the Brook Farm socialistic experiment in 1841." "In languaage that is suggestive ... and often erotic, Hawthorne offers a superb depiction of a utopian community that cannot survive the individual passions of its members."
