JOSIAH ROYCE (1855a1916) is one of the central figures in American Philosophy. Fordham has reissued the two-volume edition of his "Basic Writings", edited by John J. McDermott.

Review:


A valuable book for those with a strong interest in American thought.-Robin Friedman


Royce the moral philosopher nowhere comes across more vividly andhumanly than in Race Questions, Provincialism, and Other AmericanProblems, and in the excellent assortment of related essays includedin the expanded edition. Defying critical stereotypes about the blockuniverse of abstract idealism, Royce grapples with stubbornambiguities, countercurrents and prejudices that complicate Americanlives - probing uncomfortable issues that other American philosophersof the period mostly ignored, and breathing life into the philosophyof loyalty. For students of Royce's moral and social philosophy, thisvolume provides a tentative field manual for The Philosophy ofLoyalty, suggesting trajectories for further inquiry that remainrelevant even today. These essays - including the excellentintroductory material by Pratt and Sullivan-bear frequentre-reading, as they fairly burst with insights into the embodiedRoyce, his times, and our own futures.-Griffin Trotter


A significant addition to the literature in Royce Studies andAmerican intellectual history. This collection makes available Royce'scontributions in areas ranging from philosophy of race, to virtueethics, even to philosophy of sports.-Kelly Parker
