He wrote "The Gospel of Buddha" in 1894 and was head of the Open Court Publishing Company. His company published many books on philosophy. He did not believe in a personal God, but in an organizing principle of nature which he called God. The present volume is an answer to William James' "Pragmatism" the ideas of which Carus firmly opposed. He sees "Truth" not merely as a condition for 'useful behavior' but as a viable concept in its own right. The book takes a long and varied look at the concept of "Truth". Although he and James were on different sides of the issue, they both had a mutual respect for each other.
