L ess a biography and more an act of homage, this volume not only provides a close-up of the great lexicographer, in all his terrific wit and travels, it also brings to life an entire era. Often hugely funny — and Boswell omits no details. Although Graves recounts the days of his childhood and the early years of his marriage, it is his chronicle of the First World War and his unflinching depiction of life in the trenches — the deadening banality of that horror — that gives this book its enduring force. His comrade Siegfried Sassoon was not happy about some of the descriptions.

Packed with great stories, they are irresistibly charming. A powerful tale of endurance, and a unique historical document. Solomon Northup, a free black man born in New York, was kidnapped and sold into slavery in the American South for 12 years, until he was freed through the efforts of his friends and family. Northup's oral account of his life dictated to the politician David Wilson inspired an Oscar-winning film.

Probably as close as we can get to a time machine, Pepys famously witnesses the Great Fire of London; but more gripping throughout these hypnotically copious journals is the texture of life and love in 17th-century London.

Autobiography of a Yogi Read by Academy Award-winner Sir Ben Kingsley

Stein was close friends with Picasso — he painted her in the manner of a stone idol — and was right at the centre of the Parisian art and literary vortex. The romanticism of the imagery captured in photographs — Lawrence in full Bedouin dress out in the desert — made him a sensation back in Britain. She vowed to write their stories, and about her war experiences, as a form of a memorial. Among many unforgettable images — the terror in Barcelona, the moment he was shot in the neck — was the pervasiveness of the lice, and their fondness for trousers. By John Clubbe.

Dust Jacket. In the next year, the fundamental principles of a motor system of psychology were laid down in an article entitled The Function of Incipient Motor Processes. It explained association as essentially the association of movements, a doctrine based on the fact that impressions do not become associated merely by occurring together, but only if they are attended to together, attention being regarded as a motor process.

It also presented a physiological theory of the image or centrally excited sensation. The idea of incipient or tentative movements had been vaguely in my mind since , when in the Hall Festschrift article I made use of "sensations resulting from the stirring of an impulse. During all those years most of my vacation time was spent with my parents. The family fortunes having declined, they were living at Newburgh, enjoying a superb view of the Hudson but little variety, and I was disinclined to leave them for long.

In the summer of , while working on The Animal Mind , I spent three weeks at Cambridge looking up material in the Museum Library, and had an opportunity to see Professors James and Royce at their homes. From to I taught in the Columbia Summer School and with great pleasure and profit came to know Woodworth, the Hollingworths, Poffenberger, and the Montagues.

I occupied Dr. Cattell's office, opening out of Dr.

Woodworth's, and admired the chances of fortune that had raised me so high. In December, , my father died and my mother came to live with me at Vassar until her death in Both my parents always took pleasure in my work. I had for some time been collecting the results of all the German and French experiments on the higher mental processes. Vassar celebrated in the fiftieth anniversary of its founding, and the trustees decided to publish a commemorative series of volumes by alumnae, books of a scholarly rather than popular nature, which might not readily find a publisher in the ordinary way.

For this series I wrote Movement and Mental Imagery , trying to interpret the experimentally obtained data on the higher mental processes by the motor principles I had been evolving, and developing the doctrine that thinking involves tentative or incipient movements. Since the series was published in so uncommercial a fashion, it got little advertising, but at least I can say that ' M.

I shall never cease to be pleased that Hollingworth read it when it came out and spoke kindly of it, not to me but to his wife: a second-hand compliment has double value. Another person whose praise of it will always be remembered is Professor T. Pear, who reviewed it for the British Journal and discussed it in his Remembering and Forgetting.

In , I wrote for Titchener's Festschrift an article which had nothing to do with the motor theory, but presented some ideas on which I had been basing a course in social psychology ever since The concept of ejective consciousness had proved itself useful in analyzing and classifying the phenomena of social relations. The term was borrowed from W. Clifford's 'eject,' by which he meant [p. Thus, while both man and lower animals act socially, man has a much greater tendency to think about what is going on in the minds of his fellow-beings than the animals have, and this tendency brings about characteristic modifications in social behavior.

The term is not a motor one, but in the Hall Festschrift fourteen years earlier I had suggested a motor basis for ejective consciousness. In social psychology it seems more convenient to use the concept without discussing its physiology. It is serviceable in discussions of language, religion, and art, and is still employed in my social psychology course.

Watson's radical behaviorism was of course the favorite topic of discussion in the years from to or thereabouts. It will be remembered that his first attack on the existence of conscious processes consisted in denying that of mental imagery.

A critic could easily point out that his principles required also denial of the existence of all sensation qualities. In fact, the existence of sensation qualities is irreconcilable with any materialistic monism. My presidential address before the meeting of the Psychological Association tried, while rejecting the Watsonian metaphysics, to show that introspection itself is an objective method and one necessarily used by the behaviorist.

The evening of that address was one of perfect happiness for the speaker, whatever the sufferings of the audience may have been. The scene was the beautiful Gothic dining-hall of the Princeton Graduate School, and I sat at the high table on the dais.
