This chapter addresses Howison's critique of Royce's idealistic metaphysics. It looks at the significance of the will to interpret for the constitution of human personhood and that of the divine Self, as well as how Royce's late conception of human personhood. It holds that a divine person is the one who “inspires, guides, and empowers” human persons to live lives in accord with the ideal of the Beloved Community. The chapter continues the interpretative task by examining the significance of Royce's ethico-religious insight in his The Problem of Christianity and his Extension Course on Ethics. The chapter ends with a comparison of Howison's personal idealism and Royce's idealistic metaphysics, showing that by 1915 Royce's metaphysics of community became very similar to Howison's personal idealism.
