Marcel Proust in the Light of William James : In Search of a Lost Source, Hardback Book

Marcel Proust in the Light of William James : In Search of a Lost Source Hardback

Description

Although William James was a significant presence in Paris at the dawn of the 20th century, his psychological and philosophical theories well known, any role he played in the gestation of Marcel Proust's ground-breaking novel A la recherche du temps perdu has been neglected by scholars on both sides of the Atlantic-until now.

Much of what made Proust's novel so startlingly original stems from James's writings, which were available to Proust in French translation.
