FIERRO, Catriel. "Principles: Willian James relevance in the teaching of the history of psychology". Eureka [online]. 2013, vol.10, n.1, pp. 96-104. ISSN 2220-9026.

William James is the author of one of the most profound compendiums in the history of Psychology. In it, he’s depicted as a mentalist, voluntarist, introspectionist and experimentalist scientist.. Nevertheless, James is usually picked up from his Darwinist and biologists affiliations, ignoring his other contributions. A thoughtful analysis is carried out around James’ book Principles of Psychology, pointing it’s main contributions and linking them to behaviourists, cognitivists, gestaltic, phenomenological and constructionists developments that came after, in its theoretical and practical sides. Useful and relevant in the teaching of the history of our discipline and in psychologists’ professional training, James presence can be detected in some of Argentina’s universities’ basic training programmes. From a synthetic bibliographical analysis of some of the programmes of those universities, James’ presence is verified, although enclosed. An attempt is made to survey James’ importance and validity.
