In autumn 1887, he enrolled at Harvard University, where his main interests were philosophy and psychology. In 1888, he left Harvard after receiving only a B.A. and moved to Leipzig, Germany to study with psychologist Wilhelm Wundt, from whom he learned the concept of "the gesture," a concept central to his later work.
