The Principles of Psychology

The Principles of Psychology is a monumental text in the history of psychology, written by American psychologist William James and published in 1890. James was an American philosopher and psychologist who trained to be a physician before going into psychology. Known as "The Father of Psychology", James also authored Essays in Radical Empiricism, important in philosophy, and The Varieties of Religious Experience, which led to understanding the differences of religious experience that helped build theories of mind cure.

There are four methods from James' book: stream of consciousness (James' most famous psychological metaphor); emotion (later known as the James-Lange theory); habit (human habits are constantly formed to achieve certain results); and will (through James' personal experiences in life).
