Welcome to the William James Center!

The William James Center (WJC) is a multidisciplinary institution at the Potsdam University. It aims to promote research on William James´s (1842-1910) work and on the current relevance of his thinking. In addition to a research library and a website (also for Academic Contacts), regular conferences and annual visits of William James Scholars in Residence at the University of Potsdam serve to maintain an international network of William James researchers.
