James Campbell's Experiencing William James: Belief in a Pluralistic World: Author Meets Critic

The significance of this volume for American philosophy is that it is an overall examination of the thought of the philosopher and psychologist, William James (1842-1910). James has long been recognized as a central figure in the American philosophic tradition whose ideas continue to play a significant role in contemporary thinking. Sadly, his thought has been approached over the years in anything but a comprehensive fashion, as too often commentators have considered only pieces of his thought or aspects of his vision – his stream of consciousness, his will to believe, his pragmatism, his religious thought, etc. – and underplayed the importance of his context.
