The Freudian wish and its place in ethics by Edwin B Holt( Book )

54 editions published between 1915 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The problem of good conduct, both in practice and in ethical theory, ought to receive some clarification, one would suppose, from a science that studies the mind and the will in their actual operation. If in the past psychology has not materially contributed to this problem, it is possibly owing to the incompetence of psychology to tell us much that is either true or useful about the essential nature of mind or will, or of the soul. I believe that such has been the case, and that now for the first time, and largely owing to the insight of Dr. Sigmund Freud, a view of the will has been gained which can be of real service to ethics. In presenting this I shall disregard the current comments on Freud, which have become so familiar, for he deserves neither the furious dispraise nor the frantic worship which have been accorded him. He is a man of genius, simply, more sagacious and more perspicacious than his detractors and far more sane than many of his followers. Freud's contribution to science is notable, and in my opinion epoch-making, for a reason which has hardly ever been mentioned. And this reason is that he has given to the science of mind a 'causal category': or, to put it less academically, he has given us a key to the explanation of mind. This key to the mind, which Freud calls the 'wish, ' is the subject of the present volume. And we shall consider more particularly the bearing which this wish-psychology may have on ethics"--Preface.

The Americans by Hugo Münsterberg( Book )

29 editions published between 1904 and 2012 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Preface to my "American Traits," in which I defended German ideals and criticised some American tendencies, I said, some years ago: "It has been often questioned whether I am right in fighting merely against American shortcomings from a German point of view, and in trying to destroy prejudices on this side of the water; whether it is not, in a still higher degree, my duty to attempt the same for the other side;--for German prejudices concerning the United States are certainly not less severe, and the points in which Germany might learn from American culture not less numerous. The question is fair, and I shall soon put before the German public a book on American life--a book which deals in a detailed way with the political, economic, intellectual, and social aspects of American culture. Its purpose is to interpret systematically the democratic ideals of America." Here is the book; it fulfils the promise, and it might appear that no further explanation is needed. And yet, in sending a book into the world, I have never felt more strongly the need of prefatory excuses--excuses not for writing the book, but for agreeing to its translation into English"--Preface.

James family additional papers by James family( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The bulk of this collection consists of letters from Alice Howe Gibbens James to her sons Henry (1879-1947), a lawyer; and William (1882-1961), a portrait painter. Many of the letters discuss the family's two most famous members: Alice's husband, philosopher William James (1842-1910); and his brother, novelist Henry James (1843-1916). Most of her letters are written from her home in Cambridge (Mass.), or while traveling in Europe. Her involvement with the final months and estate of Henry James (1843-1916) in London is discussed at length. She was also in Stanford (Calif.) for the earthquake of 1906. The collection also includes partial or copied letters by philosopher William James (1842-1910): postscripts he added to letters from his wife to his sons; a copy of a letter to his third son, artist Alexander R. James; a partial courtship letter to his future wife; and a complete letter he dictated to his son William. Also included are letters addressed to William James. The novelist Henry James (1843-1916) is represented with letters he received from family members, 1901-1911. An 1866 letter by family patriarch Henry James (1811-1882) also appears in transcript form. A few non-family letters can also be found in the collection, most notably letters by Edwin B. Holt, James Jackson Putnam, and Sir Leslie Stephen. The compositions series includes a diary written by Daniel Lewis Gibbens (father of Alice Howe Gibbens James) as surgeon on board the ship Manhattan en route between New York City and Liverpool, 1859-1860
