The correspondence of Charles Darwin by Charles Darwin( Book )

29 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in English and held by 1,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the Origin of Species is one of the great revolutionary books in history; and the best source for understanding it is Charles Darwin's correspondence. These eight award-winning volumes, reprinted for the first time in paperback, present the definitive text of all known letters to and from Darwin during the first half-century of his remarkable life, including the Beagle voyage and the great public debates on his evolutionary theory. In riveting detail, they tell the story of an aimless English schoolboy who emerged as the most controversial man of science of his era. With hundreds of correspondents across the globe and from all walks of life, the over 3000 letters presented here offer an extraordinary panorama of the fast-changing world of the nineteenth century. Poignant and powerful, they offer a moving commentary on issues at the heart of our own concerns, from global environmental change to the effects of science on religious belief
The Beagle letters by Charles Darwin( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Darwin's voyage on HMS Beagle is a gripping adventure story, and a turning point in the making of the modern world. Brought together here in chronological order, the letters he wrote and received during his trip provide a first-hand account of a voyage of discovery that was as much personal as intellectual. We follow Darwin's adventures as he prepares for his travels, lands on his first tropical island, watches an earthquake level a city, and learns how to catch ostriches from a running horse. We witness slavery, political revolution, and epidemic disease, and share the otherworldly experience of landing on the Galapagos Islands and collecting specimens. His letters are counterpoised by replies from family and friends that record a comfortable, intimate world back in England. Original watercolours by the ship's artist, Conrad Martens, vividly bring to life Darwin's descriptions of his travels."--Jacket
The principles of psychology by William James( Book )

7 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Principles of Psychology is a monumental text in the history of psychology, written by William James and published in 1890. William James (1842-1910) was an American philosopher and psychologist who was also trained as a physician. There were four methods in James' psychology: analysis (the logical criticism of precursor and contemporary views of the mind), introspection (the psychologist's study of his own states of mind), experiment (in hypnosis or neurology), and comparison (the use of statistical means to distinguish norms from anomalies). James discussed experiments on illusions, too (optical, auditory, etc.), and offered a physiological explanation for many of them, that "the brain reacts by paths which previous experiences have worn, and makes us usually perceive the probable thing, i.e. the thing by which on previous occasions the reaction was most frequently aroused." Illusions are thus a special case of the phenomenon of habit. Principles is an important source for the history of psychology in the 19th century
The will to believe and other essays in popular philosophy by William James( Book )

11 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For this 1897 publication, the American philosopher William James (1842-1910) brought together ten essays, some of which were originally talks given to Ivy League societies. Accessible to a broader audience, these non-technical essays illustrate the author's pragmatic approach to belief and morality, arguing for faith and action in spite of uncertainty. James thought his audiences suffered 'paralysis of their native capacity for faith' while awaiting scientific grounds for belief. His response consisted in an attitude of 'radical empiricism', which deals practically rather than ideologically with real-world phenomena. When facing a 'momentous' decision about belief, he says, we both can and must choose the best hypothesis. The first four essays apply this principle to religious faith, and the rest explore the pragmatic approach to such topics as determinism, ethics and individual achievement. James developed his ideas further in The Varieties of Religious Experience (1902) and Pragmatism (1907), both of which are reissued in this series

"Charles Darwin changed the direction of modern thought by establishing the basis of evolutionary biology. This volume brings together a fascinating selection of his letters, offering a glimpse of his daily experiences, scientific observations, his personal concerns, and friendships. Beginning with a charming set of letters written to an unnamed friend at the age of twelve, through his university years in Edinburgh and Cambridge up to the publication of his most famous work, On the Origin of Species in 1859, these letters chart one of the most exciting periods of Darwin's life, including the voyage of the Beagle and subsequent studies which led him to develop his theory of natural selection. Darwin's vivid writing style enables the reader to see the world through his own eyes, as he matures from grubby schoolboy in Shropshire to one of the most controversial thinkers of modern times."--Jacket
