A century after his loss of life, learn from neuroscience, physics, psychology, and parapsychology is making the case, either theoretically and experimentally, that solutions James’s query within the affirmative. by way of setting apart what James passionately desired to think, according to logic, from what his insights and researches led him to think, Bricklin exhibits how James himself laid the foundation for this more difficult view of life. The non-reality of will, self, and time is in keeping with James’s psychology of volition, his epistemology of self, and his trust that Newtonian, aim, even-flowing time doesn't exist.
