Review quote

‘This book offers magisterial coverage of a masterwork. Reflecting a lifetime of research and teaching in modern psychology and sympathetic study of its most eloquent writer, David Leary has produced a thorough and readable guide to William James’s classic text. It is a reference guide and more. This Guidebook explains James’s ideas in the contexts of his own development, in the contexts of the emerging New Psychology of the late nineteenth century, and in their creative relation with later psychology and philosophy. This is a reader’s guide worthy of its illustrious subject.’ Paul Croce, Stetson University, USA, and former president of the William James Society show more
