Publisher's Summary

Born in New York City in 1842, William James grew up in an educated, wealthy household. The family shuttled between New York and Europe, with the children, four boys and a girl, educated by private tutors. William studied painting before settling on a life in the sciences. His brother Henry became a well-known novelist.
William worked on The Principles of Psychology throughout the 1880s, while teaching psychology and philosophy at Harvard University. He drew together various styles of science to create a unified whole, and to establish psychology as a valid discipline. Not only did he achieve this, but he also created concepts - such as thought being a "stream of consciousness" - that have found their way into both the arts, and popular conversation.
James wrote and published extensively in the 20 years between the publication of Principles, and his death in 1910. Nevertheless, this audiobook is still considered his masterpiece, and it earned him the title of "the father of psychology."
