Streams of experience : reflections on the history and philosophy of American culture by John J McDermott( Book )

17 editions published between 1985 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

McDermott's reflections take him from a general overview of philosophy in Western culture to Emerson and James' thought in particular. He considers aspects of the American experience--change, pluralism, interrelatedness--as well as the aesthetics of city life, education, and cultural literacy. Whether he writes about education, architecture, or the soul's struggle with inevitable death, McDermott believes that philosophical thinking, when done in the tradition of James, Dewey, and Emerson, can both illuminate American culture and direct Americans towards more satifying forms of experience.

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the first professors of psychology in the United States and the author of its first comprehensive book, William James with his openness to the breath of human experience and possibility established the wide scope of psychology. In his book, The principles of psychology, he considered virtually every human behavior, emotion, attitude, and way of experiencing. Even though he died in this house 100 years ago, his discussions of human perceiving, thinking, feeling and acting resonate today, not only in the form of study of psychology, but also can have great relevance to how we construct our own individual lives

The pluralistic philosophy of Stephen Crane by Patrick Kiaran Dooley( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In spite of an extensive secondary literature that bristles with philosophical labels concerning his "outlook," Stephen Crane's philosophy has been virtually ignored. Patrick Dooley's systematic examination of Crane's writings - novels, sketches, short stories, news dispatches, and poems, whether famous or previously ignored - discloses coherent but subtle metaphysical, epistemological, social, and ethical positions. Dooley provides a sustained, direct discussion of Crane's philosophy and offers vivid depictions of fundamental philosophical issues. Crane lived in a society that had lost confidence in religion's ability to answer questions about the nature of reality, the significance of human actions, the meaning of truth, and the validity of conventional morality. Crane's fundamental philosophical view, Dooley finds, is that reality is comprised of changing and interrelated processes
