Excerpt from Introduction to Philosophy
The translator desires me to write a brief preface for the English edition of my Introduction. First of all, I wish to express my gratitude that the little book has been considered worthy of being presented to the English speaking world in 'their own tongue. I should like to add, furthermore, that I am greatly indebted to English and American thinkers for inspiration and suggestion which I regard of the highest value. Herbert Spencer taught me to think genetically and from William James, whose recent untimely death fills us all with profound sorrow, I got the idea of making psychological analysis the basis of my philosophical investigations. And in the new pragmatic method, which likewise originated in America, I have found a theory to which I had been led independently by my own investigations even before hearing of its American exponents.
