James Family 2010 - Final Papers

This is the last set of web papers to emerge from “House of Wits”: The Intersecting Wor(l)ds  of Alice, Henry and William James, a new course being offered @ Bryn Mawr College in Spring 2010. At the end of semester, students are thinking out loud here about the contemporary implications of the work of the James family. What roles are they now playing in our culture, and in our lives?

Take a look around, and feel warmly welcome to respond in the comment area available at the end of each paper. What strikes, intrigues, puzzles you...what, among your reactions, might be of interest or use to the writer, or others in the class, or others who--exploring the internet--might be in search of thoughtful conversation about how we are making sense of the way the James family portrayed the world?
