    1. This was an extremely fascinating, challenging, and at times infuriating read: Fascinating because James accurately predicted so much of modern psychology in 1890, before the experimental method really existed (beyond psychophysics, which he lambasts as a waste of time when one could just introspect instead); Challenging because he roots so many of his insights and explanations in classical philosophy, a slow and thorough approach that breaks the issues down to their fundamental assumptions for [...]

    2. Amazing insights and extraordinary neurological detail along with extremely cogent reasoning gives this book a modern aura if it weren't for the antiquated language. A startling look into a brilliant 19th century mind.

    3. Written in 1890, it's a classic tastycake! In chapter 10, "The Stream of Thought," James lays the groundwork for Joyce and Woolf and all that good stuff.

    4. In this abbreviated (1893) edition of his classic work, James' model for how we interact with the environment is simple enough. Input comes from environmental stimuli, the brain processes it and converts it into bodily output (action). "The whole neural organism," he writes,", physiologically considered, but a machine for converting stimuli into reactions; and the intellectual part of our life is knit up with but the middle or 'central' part of the machine's operations."James has one-half of the [...]

    5. This is a classic because it is one of the first published books on psychology as a discipline and because it is full of James' ideas about how the mind works solely based on the method of introspection. I read this when I was in graduate school one summer the 100th anniversary of its being publishd and I am so grateful I was given that opportunity because its amazing the amount of insight in this volume as well as the second one. It takes a while to adjust to the slight differences in his langu [...]

    6. This extraordinary book published in 1890 describes psychology in terms that would be just as applicable today as they were in his day. William James did an amazing job of presenting this complex subject in logical step-by-step terms that support his opinions both biologically and psychologically. Highly recommended for those interested in the subject.

    7. I started reading this book because he gets referenced alot there seems to be a pretty avid following of his also but I have yet to find that ingenuity. the reading is pretty tough so I'm probably missing alot of stuff

    8. It's the first modern form of truly scientific psychological analysis. He also builds from a knowledge of philosophy and later in his life focused very much on that.

    9. I must read it again.; so difficult to retain all the information. His style is hard to follow. Maybe I should give up psychology!
