William James, Science of Mind, and Anti-Imperial Discourse by Baker, Bernadette M.
William James, Science of Mind, and Anti-Imperial Discourse
by Baker, Bernadette M.
 
In the past few decades, the humanities and social sciences have developed new methods of reorienting their conceptual frameworks in a "world without frontiers." In this book, Bernadette M. Baker offers an innovative approach to rethinking sciences of mind as they formed at the turn of the twentieth century, via the concerns that have emerged at the turn of the twenty-first. The less-visited texts of Harvard philosopher and psychologist William James provide a window into contemporary debates over principles of toleration, anti-imperial discourse, and the nature of ethics. Baker revisits Jamesian approaches to the formation of scientific objects including the child mind, exceptional mental states, and the ghost to explore the possibilities and limits of social scientific thought dedicated to mind development and discipline formation around the construct of the West.
