About the Book

"Pragmatism" is a philosophical work written by William James in 1907. The book explores the concept of pragmatism, which is a philosophical approach that emphasizes the practical consequences of ideas and beliefs. In the book, James argues that truth should be defined in terms of practical consequences rather than abstract principles. He suggests that ideas and beliefs should be evaluated based on how well they work in the real world, rather than how well they conform to preconceived notions or ideals. James also explores the relationship between belief and action, arguing that our beliefs influence our actions and that we should seek to align our beliefs with our actions in order to live a more fulfilling life. He also discusses the importance of individual experience in shaping our beliefs and the role of uncertainty in the pursuit of truth.

About Author

William James

William James was an American philosopher, historian, and psychologist. He was born on January 11, 1842, and died on August 26, 1910. He was the first teacher in the United States to teach a psychology course. James and Charles Sanders Peirce started the philosophical school called pragmatism, and James is also considered one of the founders of functional psychology. James studied medicine, physiology, and biology, and he started teaching in those fields. However, he was drawn to the scientific study of the human mind at a time when psychology was becoming a science. James's knowledge of the work of people like Hermann Helmholtz in Germany and Pierre Janet in France helped him get scientific psychology classes started at Harvard University. In the 1875–1876 school year, he taught his first experimental psychology class at Harvard.
