(p.655) 21 Recent Logical Inquiries and Their Psychological Bearings
The Basic Writings of Josiah Royce, Volume II

Fordham University Press

This introductory chapter discusses recent logical inquiries and their psychological bearings. These logical inquiries refer to two decidedly distinct classes of researches, both of which are receiving much attention today. The first of these two classes include researches directly bearing upon the psychology of the thinking process, and upon the natural history of logical phenomena in general. Such inquiries may be called “logical,” since they are sometimes undertaken by logicians for the sake of their own science, and in any case are suggested by the problems of logic. However, studies of this class are also contributions to psychology. Meanwhile, the second class of recent logical inquiries consists of studies in the comparative logic of the various sciences and of examinations of the first principles of certain special sciences.

Keywords:   logical inquiries, researches, psychology, thinking process, logical phenomena, logic, sciences, special sciences
