"Krister Dylan Knapp provides [an] analytical and contextualized account of James's psychical research. Knapp argues that psychical research permeated James's life: while James always maintained a critical stance towards claims of paranormal phenomena, its study was central to his relationships familial and professional, shaped his unique intellectual disposition, and threaded together his life's intellectual trajectory"-- Provided by publisher.
