  5. The Comic Mind Of William James.Ramón Del Castillo - 2012 - William James Studies 8:65-116.
    In this paper I contemplate humour as an essential ingredient of William James’s philosophical temperament. First, I compare James and Santayana in terms of their diverse humours. This comparison allows me to characterize tentatively the contrast between irony and comicalness. Second, I explain the connection between James’s own humour and the difference between cynic and sympathetic temperaments as he described them. Third, I explore with Bergson and Chesterton the ethical dimension of the ironic and the comical. Fourth, I examine the (...)

  6. The Non-Disciplinary William James.Paul Croce - 2012 - William James Studies 8:1-33.
    William James crossed many disciplinary fields in his career. He composed his theories, especially in psychology, philosophy, and religion, in contexts that did not yet contain sharp disciplinary boundaries, and in fact, many were just starting to take modern shape. His biographical roots in science and religion and his commitment to understanding their relation to each other fostered thinking that emphasized the interrelation of the parts of his work. These forces encouraged James to be a non-disciplinary thinker. He did not (...)

  7. Another Side Of William James: On Radical Approaches To A “Liberal” Philosopher.Loren Goldman - 2012 - William James Studies 8:34-64.
    Though William James left no comprehensive political philosophy, current scholarly consensus holds that his pluralism underwrites a robust imperative for creative freedom and hence some form of Liberal politics. Earlier in the 20 th century, however, things were different: James was initially considered an ideological dogmatist and a forerunner of Fascism and syndicalism. This article examines two such readings in the work of Georges Sorel and Ernst Bloch, and argues that these philosophers pinpoint a weakness at the heart of James’s (...)

  8. William James And The Anti-War Campaign: “On The Moral Equivalent Of War” And A “Certain Blindness In Human Beings”.Kipton Jensen - 2012 - William James Studies 8:132-151.
    This essay explores several philosophical objections to war in William James’s “On the Moral Equivalent of War” and “On a Certain Blindness.” More concerned with the interiority of war than just war theory, James provides a modicum of guidance if not also consolation to those readers who object to “war and forms of peace that mean the same thing as war,” i.e., social practices that are inwardly inconsistent with good will toward all life. The strength of one’s opposition to war (...)
