Jonathan Bricklin

Author of The Illusion of Will, Self, and Time: William James's Reluctant Guide to Enlightennent (SUNY Press), and Editor of Sciousness (Eirini Press). A mystical experience on my first 9-day silent retreat at Insight Meditation Society in Barre Massachusetts in 1989 undermined my commonsense understanding of reality, and sent me on a lifelong quest to explore the nature of consciousness. I began with William James's classic text, The Principles of Psychology. Reading this text and other works of James's for the past 4 decades has been like falling down Lewis Carroll's rabbit hole. I believe I have landed where James persistently suggested the descent was leading, even as he tried to steer himself elsewhere. In addition to my 2 books, I have published a dozen articles on James in various academic journals, most of which are available on Researchgate.com or Academia.com. Chicago's Seminary Co-op bookstore voted The Illusion of Will, Self, and Time as one of its 2016 books "Most Likely to Endure for Years to Come."
