Where you'll be

Here are two examples of the buildings we'll visit: (1) William James Hall. The psychology building at Harvard is named for William James, who is considered by many as the founder of psychology. Many people don't know who James is, though he is one of the most influential American philosophers. (2) Swedenborg Chapel. This quaint stone building rarely gets noticed in the Harvard campus. But there's a story behind this religion no one knows about.
