Editorial Reviews

Virginia Quarterly Review

"This is a fascinating gathering of essays on one of the great and influential figures in the history of American thought."—Virginia Quarterly Review
American Review

"Simon has assembled an absorbing collection of impressions, reminiscences, and vignettes about the philosopher William James by his friends, family, students, and acquaintances. Among the writers collected are Henry James, George Santayana, Josephine Clara Goldmark, Walter Lippmann, and Gilbert Keith Chesterton."—American Review

"William James Remembered ranges widely, from James’s teaching methods to his platonic and barely sublimated love affair with a young girl he met on a hiking trip. . . . James himself intrigued those who met him, and their statements replicate that intrigue in the reader."—Poetry Room
