The Correspondence of William James

To support the continuing preparation of an edition of the correspondence of William James.

The purpose of this project is to publish complete and authoritative texts of the correspondence of William James, one of the most read and influential thinkers of the past one hundred years. James's letters span a period of about fifty years and form one of the most detailed records of American intellectual life from the Civil war to 1910. The great diversity of interests and correspondents makes the James letters an important project from the point of view of American and European cultural history. This critical, annotated Edition of The Correspondence of William James, in twelve volumes, includes both sides of the correspondence. We are requesting funds to bring to completion this award-winning and critically acclaimed Edition with the editing and publication of volumes 10, 11, and 12.
