Yes, But Not Quite

This chapter compares Martin Luther King, Jr.'s philosophical theology, specifically his notions of the Beloved Community and agape, with Josiah Royce's metaphysics of community and its notion of the Beloved Community. It suggests how King's personalism, specifically his notion of the Beloved Community, could be strengthened by placing these notions in a Roycean metaphysical framework. It also suggests how King's philosophical nonviolence could serve as a more fertile ground for Royce's ethics and metaphysics of community than Royce's own later social and political positions, specifically his pro-World War I stance.

Keywords:   Martin Luther King, Beloved Community, agape, metaphysics of community, Roycean metaphysical framework, philosophical nonviolence
