With the clarity that James deemed obligatory, Some Problems of Philosophy outlines his theory of perception. The early chapters expose the defects of intellectualism and monism and the advantages of empiricism and pluralism. The novelty that enters into concrete perceptual experience, and that is disallowed by the rationalizing intellect, suggests exciting possibilities. Denied any absolute truth in an ever-changing world, privy to only a piece of the truth at any given moment, the individual can, with faith and good will, help create order out of chaos. Some Problems in Philosophy, published posthumously, represents an important advance in William James’s thought.

Kann es sein, dass unser Denken unauflösliche Widersprüche enthält? Die Paradoxien des Unendlichen sind ein guter Kandidat dafür. Kant hat in seiner transzendentalen Dialektik behauptet, dass wir das Unendliche nicht konsistent denken können. Hegel hält dagegen mit einer faszinierenden positiven Dialektik, die das Unendliche widerspruchsfrei denken will. Bei Cantor jedoch, der die moderne Auffassung des Unendlichen revolutioniert hat, kehren die Paradoxien wieder zurück. Guido Kreis zeigt, dass unsere Begriffe vom Unendlichen relativ zu unseren besten Theorien tatsächlich inkonsistent sind, und führt anhand dieser negativen Dialektik zugleich in die Grundformen der modernen Dialektik ein.
