Richardsons thought-provoking and utterly moving work, ten years in the making, draws on a vast number of unpublished letters, journals, and family records. Through impassioned scholarship, Richardson illuminates Jamess hugely influential works: The Varieties, Principles of Psychology, Talks to Teachers, and Pragmatism.
