Essays in radical empiricism, William James.
William James’s last book was published after his death in 1910. For years he had talked of rounding out his philosophical work with a treatise on metaphysics. He chose to do so in the form of an introduction to the problems of philosophy, because writing for beginners would force him to be nontechnical and readable. Although this is James’s most systematic and abstract work, it has all the lucidity of his more popular writings. Through analysis of the fundamental problems of Being, the relation of thoughts to things, novelty, causation, and the Infinite, the reader is introduced to the original philosophical synthesis that James called radical empiricism.
