I needed that little ribbing, Oryx. Perhaps I won't bore you with the thesis on that I had in mind (H.J. as a closet pragmatist). The fact is that I don't have a clear enough understanding of Pragmatism versus other modes of philosophical enquiry to make it work. So I'll leave brother William out of it for now, and try to limit myself to what I've read of Henry. That includes a few of the shorter novels (The Aspern Papers, Daisy Miller, etc.) as well as the titles mentioned above. Give me a couple of days & let's see what I can come up with to kick off a discussion.
