"In this study, Russell Goodman explores Wittgenstein's long engagement with the work of the pragmatist William James. He argues that James exerted a distinctive and pervasive positive influence on Wittgenstein's thought. The book details the commitments of these two philosophers to concrete human experience, the priority of practice over intellect, and the importance of religion in understanding human life." "Tracing in detail what Wittgenstein learned from The Principles of Psychology and The Varieties of Religious Experience, the author provides considerable support for Wittgenstein's claim that he is saying "something that sounds like pragmatism." Goodman finds that Wittgenstein displays a pragmatist philosophical persona - attuned to the human interests served by our theorizing, flexible enough to move on without having every question answered." This account of the convergence in thinking of two major philosophers usually seen as members of discrete traditions will be welcomed by students of Wittgenstein, William James, pragmatism, and the history of twentieth-century philosophy.
