Most widely held works by Michel Meulders
Helmholtz : from enlightenment to neuroscience by Michel Meulders( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and French and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although Hermann von Helmholtz was one of the most remarkable figures of nineteenth-century science, he is little known outside his native Germany. Helmholtz (1821-1894) made significant contributions to the study of vision and perception and was also influential in the painting, music, and literature of the time; one of his major works analyzed tone in music. This book, the first in English to describe Helmholtz's life and work in detail, describes his scientific studies, analyzes them in the context of the science and philosophy of the period--in particular the German Naturphilosophie--and gauges his influence on today's neuroscience." "Helmholtz, trained by Johannes Muller, one of the best physiologists of his time, used a resolutely materialistic and empirical scientific method in his research. This puts him in the tradition of Kant and the English empirical philosophers and directly opposed to the idealists and naturalists who interpreted nature based on metaphysical presuppositions. Helmholtz's research on color vision put him at odds with Goethe's more romantic theorizing on the subject; but at the end of his life, Helmholtz honored Goethe's contributions, acknowledging that artistic intuition could reveal truths about the human mind that are inaccessible to science." "Helmholtz's work, eclipsed at the beginning of the twentieth century by new ideas in neurophysiology, has recently been rediscovered. We can now recognize in Helmholtz's methods--which were based on his belief in the interconnectedness of physiology and psychology--the origins of neuroscience."--Jacket

William James by Michel Meulders( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'oeuvre scientifique et philosophique de William James, grand intellectuel bostonien, frère aîné du célèbre écrivain Henry James, reste d'une brûlante actualité. Créateur à Harvard du premier laboratoire de Psychologie expérimental des États-Unis, il fut l'un des premiers adeptes des théories de Darwin. Il écrivit dans une langue admirable un monumental traité de psychologie qui eut un grand retentissement. Aujourd'hui encore, les idées scientifiques qu'il expose dans les Principles of Psychology apparaissent pertinentes et novatrices. Considéré comme l'un des plus grands philosophes américains, William James propose dans son essai Pragmatisme une méthode permettant non seulement de résoudre les controverses métaphysiques, mais aussi de faire un choix entre plusieurs alternatives. Il convient, dit-il, de chercher quelles sont les conséquences pratiques de chacune d'entre elles et d'opter pour la meilleure. Ennemi de toute pensée dogmatique, William James est un pluraliste optimiste et volontariste. Pour lui, le "bien est possible" car nous sommes libres. Michel Meulders ne s'est cependant pas contenté de présenter la pensée de William James ; il a voulu peindre le caractère inquiet, ardent, du philosophe partagé entre une quête d'absolu et les souvenirs de la Guerre de Sécession"--Page 4 of cover
