I'll see if I can find it at work Jim.
Our year ones begin Philosophies of Education module week commencing 12th March.
I always do Dewey, James and Peirce with them. Pragmatism's olden but golden.
Often wondered to what extent William's psychical interests informed some of his brother Henry's fiction.
Those are two lads I dream of coming through for a chat one day.
Nothing so far.
You want philosophers for guides and what do you get?
In my case a 18th century lady upholsterer and some of her chums. Hence not much in the way of deep wisdom but boy do I know how to re cover a wing chair.

I love it Quiet but more useful than much of the so called philosophy we get these days. You could make a good living out of re-upholstering antique chairs while in trance. Very Happy

The whole issue of the early intertwining of psychology and Spiritualism is a fascinating area.
