n the tenth anniversary of his death, Vintage Books and The Modern Library look back on the writing of one of America's greatest writers and most important intellectuals. James Baldwin, through novels, essays, social criticism, and drama, explored the American condition in a new language of unmatched depth, passion, and surgical precision. His works' potential for transforming both the American consciousness and conscience is still just beginning to be registered. Baldwin's excavation of America emerged at a crucial moment in our collective history, and, ten years after his death, the questions he raised continue to resonate with the hope and despairand to take the defining shapehis voice gave to them.

JAMES BALDWIN. James Arthur Baldwin was born in Harlem, New York City, Aug. 2, 1924 and died on Nov. 30, 1987. For more information about James Baldwin
James Arthur Baldwin was born in Harlem, New York City, Aug. 2, 1924 and died on Nov. 30, 1987. He offered a vital literary voice during the era of civil rights activism in the 1950s and '60s. The eldest of nine children, his stepfather was a minister. At age 14 , Baldwin became a preacher at the small Fireside Pentecostal Church in Harlem. After he graduated from high school, he moved to Greenwich Village. In the early 1940s, he transferred his faith from religion to literature. Critics, however, note the impassioned cadences of Black churches are still evident in his writing. Go Tell It on the Mountain (1953), his first novel, is a partially autobiographical account of his youth. His essay collections [ Notes of a Native Son Nobody Knows My Name (1961), and The Fire Next Time (1963)] were influential in informing a large white audience.
From 1948, Baldwin made his home primarily in the south of France, but often returned to the USA to lecture or teach. In 1957, he began spending half of each year in New York City. His novels include Giovanni's Room (1956), about a white American expatriate who must come to terms with his homosexuality, and

About James Baldwin
James Baldwin was born on August 2, 1924, and educated in New York. His first novel, Go Tell It on the Mountain , appeared in 1953 to excellent reviews and immediately was recognized as establishing a profound and permanent new voice in American letters. "Mountain is the book I had to write if I was ever going to write anything else," he remarked. Baldwin's play The Amen Corner was first performed at Howard University in 1955 (it was staged commercially in the 1960s), and his acclaimed collection of essays Notes of a Native Son , was published the same year. A second collection of essays, Nobody Knows My Name , was published in 1961 between his novels Giovanni's Room (1956) and Another Country The appearance of The Fire Next Time in 1963, just as the civil rights movement was exploding across the American South, galvanized the nation and continues to reverberate as perhaps the most prophetic and defining statement ever written of the continuing costs of Americans' refusal to face their own history. It became a national bestseller, and Baldwin was featured on the cover of Time magazine. Critic Irving Howe said that The Fire Next Time achieved "heights of passionate exhortation unmatched in modern American writing." In 1964

Sites Atrium Psychologie Baldwin James Mark B aldwin a une formation en philosophie et théologie. Attiré par la psychologie il se rend à Berlin où il bénéficie de l’enseignement de Wundt . En 1889 il enseigne la philosophie, la métaphysique et la logique à Toronto et commence à étudier le développement de sa propre fille. En 1893 il obtient la chaire de psychologie à Princeton et y fonde un laboratoire. Il quitte les Etats Unis en 1908 pour une chaire à l’Ecole des Hautes Etudes à Paris. Baldwin est le premier des grands théoriciens de la psychologie génétique . Ses essais sur la genèse de la pensée logique et sur une " théorie génétique de la réalité " peuvent être considérés comme une étape importante dans l’histoire de cette discipline. Il a développé avant Piaget une psychologie génétique de l’intelligence basée sur une approche biologique. Comme Piaget, il a plus particulièrement établi des liens étroits entre le problème biologique de l’évolution et de l’adaptation des espèces et le problème psychologique du développement de l’intelligence. La proximité des deux auteurs est ainsi grande, et Piaget n’a d’ailleurs pas manqué d’intégrer à sa conception de l’intelligence un certain nombre de concepts, tels que ceux d’accommodation et de réaction circulaire proposés par Baldwin dès la fin du dix-neuvième siècle, mais en les différenciant et en leur donnant une interprétation originale. Cette similitude entre les deux oeuvres s’explique en partie au moins par leur commun enracinement dans la philosophie évolutionniste de

James Baldwin
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. James Baldwin August 2 December 1 ) was an African-American novelist and essayist , probably best known for his novel Go Tell it on the Mountain . Most of Baldwin's work deals with racial and sexual issues in the mid-20th century United States . His work is notable for the deeply personal - even courageous - way in which he explores questions of identity and meaning. His novels mine all the complex, social and psychological pressures related to being both black and homosexual at a time well before the social, cultural or political equality of these groups could be assumed. Baldwin's stepfather, David Baldwin, was a factory worker and a store-front preacher ; James was the first of nine children. David was a very cruel person at home, which the young James hated. His father opposed the young Baldwin's literary aspirations but he found support from a very nice white teacher as well as the mayor of New York City Fiorello H. LaGuardia

A lthough he spent a great deal of his life abroad, James Baldwin always remained a quintessentially American writer. Whether he was working in Paris or Istanbul, he never ceased to reflect on his experience as a black man in white America. In numerous essays, novels, plays, and public speeches, the eloquent voice of James Baldwin spoke of the pain and struggle of black Americans and the saving power of brotherhood. James Baldwin was born in Harlem in 1924. The oldest of nine children, he grew up in poverty, developing a troubled relationship with his strict, religious father. As a child, he cast about for a way to escape his circumstances. As he recalls, "I knew I was black, of course, but I also knew I was smart. I didn't know how I would use my mind, or even if I could, but that was the only thing I had to use." By the time he was fourteen, Baldwin was spending much of his time in libraries and had found his passion for writing. During this early part of his life, he followed in his father's footsteps and became a preacher. Of those teen years, Baldwin recalled, "Those three years in the pulpit I didn't realize it then that is what turned me into a writer, really, dealing with all that anguish and that despair and that beauty." Many have noted the strong influence of the language of the church on Baldwin's style, its cadences and tone. Eager to move on, Baldwin knew that if he left the pulpit he must also leave home, so at eighteen he took a job working for the New Jersey railroad.

Baldwin also wrote three plays, a children's storybook, and a book of short stories. He gained fame with his first novel, GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN (1953), a story of hidden sins, guilt, and religious torments. In this and subsequent works Baldwin fused autobiographical material with analysis of social injustice and prejudices. Several of his novels dealt with homosexual liaisons.

When he was three, his mother married a factory worker, a hard and cruel man, who also was storefront preacher. Baldwin adopted the surname from his stepfather, who died eventually in a mental hospital in 1943. In his childhood Baldwin was a voracious reader. When he was about twelve his first story appeared in a church newspaper. At the age of 17 Baldwin left his home. After graduation from high school, he worked in several ill-paid jobs and started his literary apprenticeship.

Editors' Note
Editors' Notes : Baldwin's Mental Development is a central text in the development of social psychology in North America and recently has re-emerged as a primary source in artificial intelligence, being part of the set of Baldwin publications documenting what is now known as " the Baldwin effect. " Unfortunately, we have not been able to obtain a usable copy of the 1895 edition and have had to rely on a reprint of the third edition. Intervening years introduced some changes and references in the 1890s documents will not always be relevant to this version. In his introduction to the reprint, Vahan Sewny wrote: The book is often referenced as a predecessor to Mead's analysis of the development of the self. Following Royce, Baldwin had argued for a development process, a stepwise bootstrapping into selfhood, ideas similar to those later expounded by Mead. Also, Baldwin argues for the co-emergence of concepts of self and other, of ego and alter , ideas that would also be developed more fully by Cooley and Mead.

Ersch. 1956 unter dem Titel "Giovanni´s Room"
Aus dem Amerikanischen 1963 von Axel Kaun und Hans-Heinrich Wellmann
Der Autor:
James Baldwin wurde am 2. August 1924 als Sohn eines Predigers in Harlem in New York geboren. Hier ging er zur Schule und legte 1942 an der De Witt Clinton High School sein Schlussexamen ab. Von seinem vierzehnten bis zu seinem siebzehnten Lebensjahr war er Jungprediger in der Gemeinde seines Vaters, was in allen seinen schriftstellerischen Arbeiten unauslöschliche Spuren hinterlassen hat. James Baldwin starb am 1. Dezember 1987 in Südfrankreich.
Er sitzt in einem Ferienhaus in Südfrankreich und wartet darauf, dass diese Nacht zu Ende geht. Helen, seine Verlobte, hat ihn vor ein paar Tagen verlassen, nachdem er ihr die ganze Wahrheit erzählt hatte, ihr endlich von seiner großen Schuld am Leben eines anderen Menschen gebeichtet hatte.
Helen wollte sich erst darüber klar werden, ob sie ihn wirklich heiraten wollte, und war zu diesem Zweck für einige Zeit aus Paris weggegangen. Alleine zurückgelassen, von seinem Vater nicht im gewünschten Maße mit Geld versorgt, wendet David sich an einen alten Bekannten, dessen Blicke er sehr wohl zu deuten weiß, aber mit völliger Selbstverständlichkeit zurückweist.
