Happy 175th Birthday William James!
William James, born on this day in 1842, is one of the central figures of the philosophical tradition of Pragmatism and is considered one of the founders of Functional Psychology. A survey published by the American Psychological Association in 2002 ranked him as the 14th most eminent psychologist of the 20th century.

If you too would like to be influenced but this great man, the JCU Library has a number of works both by and about William James.
