The meaning of truth by William James( Book )

10 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosopher, psychologist, educator, and author William James ranked among the most influential figures of his time. James played a prominent role in the transition from a predominantly European-centered nineteenth century philosophy to a new pragmatic American philosophy. One of his chief contributions lay in his seminal 1907 work, Pragmatism, which featured a controversial chapter on "truth." In response to his critics- most of whom had misunderstood his thesis - James wrote The meaning of Truth, a synthesis of everything he had ever written on the theory of knowledge, including and article on the function of cognition, later polemic and expository contributions and some replies to previous criticism

"At most of our American Colleges there are Clubs formed by the students devoted to particular branches of learning; and these clubs have the laudable custom of inviting once or twice a year some maturer scholar to address them, the occasion often being made a public one. I have from time to time accepted such invitations, and afterwards had my discourse printed in one or other of the Reviews. It has seemed to me that these addresses might now be worthy of collection in a volume, as they shed explanatory light upon each other, and taken together express a tolerably definite philosophic attitude in a very untechnical way. Were I obliged to give a short name to the attitude in question, I should call it that of radical empiricism, in spite of the fact that such brief nicknames are nowhere more misleading than in philosophy. I say 'empiricism,' because it is contented to regard its most assured conclusions concerning matters of fact as hypotheses liable to modification in the course of future experience; and I say 'radical,' because it treats the doctrine of monism itself as an hypothesis, and, unlike so much of the half-way empiricism that is current under the name of positivism or agnosticism or scientific naturalism, it does not dogmatically affirm monism as something with which all experience has got to square"--Preface.
