(p.34) Three Goodbye, Idealist Consensus; Hello, New Realism!
The Relevance of Royce

Dwayne Tunstall

Fordham University Press

In this chapter, Dwayne Tunstall contends that the idealist consensus in philosophy, as represented by Josiah Royce, that existed at the dawn of the twentieth century in the United States was never adequately refuted by the New Realists. Rather, the New Realists seemed to have persuaded enough professional philosophers that realism was a more fruitful approach for conducting philosophical inquiries than post-Kantian idealism. Accordingly, Tunstall characterizes the Royce–New Realist debate not as an overthrowing of an obsolescent philosophical view with a better one, but as a series of profound disagreements over the nature and purpose of philosophy.
