They also read brief excerpts from the twentieth-century philosopher Unamuno's The Tragic Sense of Life to assess whether there is reason to look for something other than reason to make sense of life.

William James: Radicalizing Experience (3) No experience failed to fascinate William James, American psychologist and philosopher of the late nineteenth century. The study of the variety of experiences, his own as well as others, is his life's work, which begins with the psychology of consciousness, attention, and habits (Principles of Psychology, 1890) and ends in a metaphysics of pure experience that redefines empiricism and upends Cartesian dualism without leading to materialism.(Essays in Radical Experience, 1911). This seminar follows James from psychology to pragmatism to metaphysics, not just to analyze and understand a rich and original approach to philosophical questions, but also to experience philosophizing as a process of bringing our thoughts into fluency with our own lived experience. This process, which can go well or poorly, is philosophy for James. Meets with PHIL-685 002.
