Recently I've noticed a startling increase in the number of references to late 19th century philosopher and psychologist William James. It started here, and the very day after I read that piece, I came across a lengthy article on Henry's brother in Harper's magazine (unfortunately not available online). Since then, I've noticed several more Jamesian citations including this. I'm glad to see the upsurge because he's a really interesting guy; but is something going on here, or as William James would say, am I just "conscious of what [I] attend to"?
