Overview

This fascinating book contains a comprehensive treatise on the subject of psychology written by William James. This is an abridged version of his previous work The Principles of Psychology, omitting several whole chapters, the polemical and historic matter, all the metaphysical discussions and purely speculative passages, most of the quotations, and all of the book references. This was done to make the text more suitable for the classroom, which was the principle aim of this text. As such, this detailed yet accessible introduction to psychology is the perfect book for students looking for an entry point to the subject, constituting a must-have handbook for aspiring students and teachers alike. William James (January 11, 1842 – August 26, 1910) was an American philosopher and psychologist. He was the first person to offer a course in psychology and is widely accredited as being the ‘father of American psychology’ and as one of the most seminal philosophers the United States has ever produced. This scarce book is republished here with a new introductory biography of the author.
