To provide a shorter and more popular version of his 1999 The Divided Self of William James, Gale (emeritus U. of Pittsburgh) has cut out all references to secondary sources, and omitted most of the technical bits that would only be accessible to professional philosophers. He summarizes American philosopher James’ (1842-1910) thought as a passionate quest to achieve the maximum richness of experience in the scientific, moral, and mystical dimensions.
