    Description"William James is a towering figure in the history of American thought--without doubt the foremost psychologist this country has produced. His depiction of mental life is faithful, vital, and subtle. In verve, he has no equal. . . . "There is a sharp contrast between the expanding horizon of James and the constricting horizon of much contemporary psychology. The one opens doors to discovery, the other closes them. Much psychology today is written in terms of "reaction," little in terms of "becoming." James would say that a balance is needed, but that only by assuming that man has the capacity for growth are we likely to discover the scope of this same capacity." --"from the introduction by Gordon W. Allport"

    Author Information
    William James (1842-1910) was an American psychologist and philosopher and one of the most popular thinkers of the nineteenth century. He is the author of many works, including his monumental "The Principles of Psychology" (1890), "Human Immortality "(1898), and "The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature" (1902). Gordon W. Allport (1897-1967) was one of the first psychologists to study personality, and also researched human attitudes, prejudices, and religious beliefs. He is the author of "Personality" (1937), "The Individual and His Religion" (1950), and "The Nature of Prejudice" (1954).
    Review quote
    "The re-publication of James's work . . . is a testimony to his monumental importance in the field of psychology. The work, a brief of his larger work, "The Principles of Psychology", illustrates to the modern mind how far we have come in returning to some of James's insights." "--Studies in Formative Spirituality"
