The will to believe and other essays in popular philosophy by William James( Book )

"James explores the idea of Gustav Fechner that 'the whole universe in its different spans and wave-lengths, exclusions and developments, is everywhere alive and conscious.' Put more simple James believes that from the myriad consciousness of the world comes a 'consciousness of still wider scope.' It is this idea that forms the basis for the philosophy of Pluralism."--Page 4 of cover

The Beagle letters by Charles Darwin( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 716 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

Philosophisch-religiöses Gespräch
Some problems of philosophy; a beginning of an introduction to philosophy by William James( Book )

8 editions published between 1979 and 2008 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the clarity that William James deemed obligatory, Some Problems of Philosophy outlines his theory of perception. The early chapters expose the defects of intellectualism and monism and the advantages of empiricism and pluralism. The novelty that enters into concrete perceptual experience, and that is disallowed by the rationalizing intellect, suggests exciting possibilities. Denied any absolute truth in an ever-changing world, privy to only a piece of the truth at any given moment, the individual can, with faith and good will, help create order out of chaos. Some Problems of Philosophy, published posthumously, represents an important advance in William James's thought."--Jacket

Origins : selected letters of Charles Darwin 1822-1859 by Charles Darwin( Book )

15 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
