Cancelled - John Kaag
The author of Hiking with Nietzsche and American Philosophy: A Love Story, John Kaag, also a professor of philosophy at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, makes this welcome Elliott Bay return for his newest book, Sick Souls, Healthy Minds: How William James Can Save Your Life (Princeton University Press).
“Kaag's reading of James is as elucidating as readers have come to expect from him. Once again, he writes in a clear, focused, and winningly self-aware style that makes friends of James and himself for anyone who wonders if life is worth living. A book in which Kaag further carves out his niche in philosophy: personal, practical, and crucial.” —Kirkus Reviews.
"Not since Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance have I read such a mesmerizing confluence of personal experience and formal thought as John Kaag's American Philosophy: A Love Story. That combination is on display again in his Sick Souls, Healthy Minds—a brief and powerful book about one of America's most profound minds, William James, and what he can teach us about what makes life worth living."―Robert D. Richardson.
