Is Life Worth Living? — William James (1904).
William James, the brother of esteemed novelist Henry James and diarist Alice James, is considered by many to be the “Father of American psychology. While a professor at Harvard, he offered the first course in psychology in the United States. His students included Theodore Roosevelt, Gertrude Stein, Walter Lippmann, G. Stanley Hall, W. E. B. DuBois, and George Santayana. His godfather was none other than Ralph Waldo Emerson. The associations with peers, and influence on others, elevates him to a unique standing in early 20th Century philosophical and academic realms.
