Author Info
William James
William James was the son of the theologian Henry James and the eldest of five children, including the novelist Henry James (Jr.) His family traveled frequently between the U.S. and Europe, a practice which William maintained throughout his life; the many friendships he cultivated oversees secured him an international reputation. After completing his liberal arts education, James was torn between a career as a painter or a scientist. He chose the latter, receiving an M.D. from Harvard in 1869, where he taught for 35 years in the departments of anatomy, physiology, philosophy, and psychology. Of his many accomplishments, James set up the first psychology laboratory in the U.S., helped organize the American Society for Psychical Research in 1884, and received numerous awards and honors. James's lifelong fascination with human nature and culture is evident in his work, which explores the ways in which the spheres of philosophy, science, and religion intersect. William James is considered one of the great American thinkers.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Using the language of psychology, William James explains religious phenomena---including conversion, repentance, mysticism, and saintliness---as psychic energy that arises from the unconscious mind in times of trouble.
