520 William James (1842–1910) was both a philosopher and a
psychologist, nowadays most closely associated with the
pragmatic theory of truth. The essays in this Companion
deal with the full range of his thought as well as other
issues, including technical philosophical issues,
religious speculation, moral philosophy and political
controversies of his time. The relationship between James
and other philosophers of his time, as well as his brother
Henry, are also examined. By placing James in his
intellectual landscape the volume will be particularly
useful to teachers and students outside philosophy in such
areas as religious studies, history of ideas, and American
studies. New readers and nonspecialists will find this the
most convenient and accessible guide to James currently
available. Advanced students and specialists will find a
conspectus of recent developments in the interpretation of
