The twenty-nine articles, essays, and reviews in this volume, collected here for the first time, were published by William James over a long span of years, from 1878 (twelve years prior to The Principles of Psychology) to 1906. Some are theoretical; others examine specific psychological phenomena or report the results of experiments James had conducted.

Written for the most part for a scholarly rather than a popular audience, they exhibit James’s characteristic lucidity and persuasiveness, and they reveal the roots and development of his view on a wide range of psychological issues. As William R.
