Abstract: Re-examines parts of T. Natsoulas's (see PA, Vols 73:23647, 75:22323, and 76:10878) understanding of William James's conception of consciousness in light of G. E. Myers's (1986) interpretation. Issues addressed include James's account of direct (reflective) awareness, the nature of the components of the stream of consciousness (SOC), and the significance of James's claim that the SOC is sensibly continuous.
