    Cuttin' the Body Loose: Historical, Biological, and Personal Approaches to Death and Dying.William J. Gavin - 1995 - Temple University Press.
    All too often, studies of death are reduced to a series of legal or medical case studies, which ignore the need to provide a personal and a societal context. This title explores the practical and philosophical questions related to death and dying. It looks at death from the perspective of different cultures and different periods in history.

    William James and the Reinstatement of the Vague.William Joseph GAVIN - 1992 - Temple University Press.
    Recently, the work of philosopher-psychologist William James has undergone something of a renaissance. In this contribution to the trend, William Gavin argues that James's plea for the "reinstatement of the vague" to its proper place in our experience should be regarded as a seminal metaphor for his thought in general. The concept of vagueness applies to areas of human experience not captured by facts that can be scientifically determined nor by ideas that can be formulated in words. In areas as (...)

    William James’ Philosophy of Science.William J. Gavin - 1978 - New Scholasticism 52 (3):413-420.
    Although william james wrote no complete philosophy of science, nonetheless there exist in his writings several references to scientific procedure. furthermore, these are anti-positivistic in tone. these references include: 1) a rejection of the old baconian model for science; 2) an assertion that competing conceptual models of experience exist, each one of which can account for the empirical data in question; 3) nonetheless, a refusal either to reduce different conceptual theories to one conceptual outlook, or to reduce conceptual models as (...)

    Peirce And.William J. Gavin - 1980 - The Monist 63 (3):342-350.
    The multi-dimensionality of the term ‘pragmatism’ is by now a well-known phenomenon. Much has been made of the Peircean pragmatic theory of meaning vis-a-vis the Jamesian pragmatic theory of truth. Sometimes the contrast is made too quickly. This results in the undervaluing of important similarities between the two thinkers.

    William James on Language.William J. Gavin - 1976 - International Philosophical Quarterly 16 (1):81-86.
    William james is often thought of as a philosopher who rejected language as incapable of dealing with the unfinished character of the universe. Actually, There are two different complementary uses of language in james' texts. Sometimes he does reject language as inadequate; but at other times he presents a surprisingly "modern" view of language. Specifically, James recognized that meanings vary from context to context; that some words have an "intentional" aspect, And that language cannot be viewed as consisting of substantive (...)

    William James and the Indeterminacy of Language and “The Really Real”.William J. Gavin - 1976 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 50:208-218.
    The american philosopher william james has been accused of being both a positivist and a romantic intuitionist. in the present paper, i wish to defend james from both charges. first, an analysis of the james texts will indicate that: 1) he refuses to distinguish clearly sensation, percept and concept; 2) he recognizes the ontological status of concepts; and, 3) he uses the word "perceptual" in two different ways. this two-fold use of the word has been the source of much difficulty (...)

    “The Will to Believe” defines the religious question as forced, living and momentous, but even in this article James asserts that more objective factors are involved. The competing religious hypotheses must both be equally coherent and correspond to experimental data to an equal degree. Otherwise the option is not a live one. “If I say to you ‘Be a theosophist or be a Mohammedan’, it is probably a dead option, because for you neither hypothesis is likely to be alive.” James, (...)
