Encountering Josiah Royce's Ethico-Religious Insight

(p.1) Introduction
Yes, But Not Quite

Dwayne A. Tunstall

Fordham University Press

This chapter introduces Josiah Royce's ethico-religious insight and provides an outline of the topics of the book. It starts with an epigram that characterizes Royce's general philosophical temperament. It then claims that Royce's ethico-religious insight is at the center of his entire philosophy. Royce focuses his philosophical thought on a metaphysics of community, on a metaphysics as old as the Judeo-Christian tradition but as recent as the late nineteenth century. The chapter argues that Royce's philosophy is a philosophical testament to Pauline Christianity and its emphasis on the Body of Christ as a universal agapic community.

Keywords:   Josiah Royce, universal agapic community, Pauline Christianity, Body of Christ, philosophy
