About this Item

Octavo. XVI, 588pp. Original olive cloth with gold lettering on spine. Josiah Royce's "The World and the Individual" is based on the Gifford Lectures which he delivered at the University of Aberdeen in 1899 and 1900. This First Series of lectures is concerned with defining a consistent theory of the nature of Being, and with defining the reality belonging to the world and to the individual. The First Series includes ten lectures: Lecture I: "Introduction: The Religious Problems and the Theory of Being," Lecture II: "Realism and Mysticism in the History of Thought," Lecture III: "The Independent Beings: A Critical Examination of Realism," Lecture IV: "The Unity of Being, and the Mystical Interpretation," Lecture V: "The Outcome of Mysticism, and the World of Modern Critical Rationalism," Lecture VI: "Validity and Experience," Lecture VII: "The Internal and External Meaning of Ideas," Lecture VIII: "The Fourth Conception of Being," Lecture IX: "Universality and Unity," Lecture X: Individuality and Freedom." Also includes a Supplementary Essay: "The One, the Many, and the Infinite," which describes the theory of Being in F.H. Bradley's philosophy of Absolute Idealism. Moderate shelf wear. Binding somewhat darkened. Sporadic underlining and annotations in pencil throughout (easily erasable). Binding in overall fair to good, interior in good+ condition. Bookseller Inventory # 31636
