JAMES, William. The Meaning of Truth. A Sequel to 'Pragmatism.' London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1909.
8o. Original cloth-backed boards, paper spine label (some light wear at extremities). Provenance: Robertson James, the author's brother (presentation inscription from the author).
FIRST EDITION, errata slip laid-in. PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED BY WILLIAM JAMES TO HIS BROTHER ROBERTSON on the front free endpaper: "Robertson James with fraternal love of the Author. Oct. 20. '09."
A wonderful association copy of one of James's principal works: The Meaning of Truth, a continuation of the ideas developed in Pragmatism, responds to absolutist critics--believers in immutable truth and innate or inherited knowledge--who misrepresent the philosophy of pragmatism as just another form of positivism or regard it as mere egoistic solipsism.
