This panel focuses on William James’s involvement with a variety of discussions at the borders of philosophy, the sciences, and the arts. As Francesca Bordogna has recently argued, James’s ideal scientists and philosophers “would trespass intellectual and social boundaries, act as sites of intersection between different roads of inquiry.” But although James’s studies in psychology and psychical research are famous, these were only his well-worn roads. We follow several of his roads less travelled: evolution, the visual arts, and mathematics.
