The Relevance of Royce

John J. McDermott

Fordham University Press

A testament to the revival of attention given to the philosophy of Josiah Royce. Stressed here is the multi-disciplinary foci of Royce's writings and his implacable effort to overcome the irresolute presence of evil and the noxious concomitant of human suffering, which striates our experience and blocks out any and all vapid rationalizations. This essay also limns the personal life of Josiah Royce, his fear of obsolescence, and his long-standing commitment to adumbrating a philosophy of community.

Keywords:   revival of Royce, obsolescence, suffering
