The Correspondence of William James, Volume 5

Front Cover
University Press of Virginia, 1992 - Philosophers - 677 pages
The fifth volume of James's collected letters (the editors project a total of 12) tracing his evolution into professional and personal maturity. James had an epistolary talent and the letters convey his intellectual and emotional life in a very personal manner, documenting his marriage to Alice Howe, his sister's breakdown, his battles within Harvard's philosophy department, his correspondence with scholars and editor which reveal the basis of his ideas for The Principles of Psychology and, perhaps most movingly, his reflections on his father's death.
