Description

Thinking in Henry James identifies what is genuinely strange and radical about James's concept of consciousness--first, the idea that it may not always be situated within this or that person but rather exists outside or between, in some transpersonal place; and second, the idea that consciousness may have power over things and people outside the person who thinks.
