(p.110) Seven Coupling Royce's Temporalism with Levinasian Insights
Yes, But Not Quite

Dwayne A. Tunstall

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines how Royce could make the ethico-religious dimension of his temporalism explicit by incorporating certain insights from Emmanuel Levinas's phenomenology. It addresses a serious problem with Royce's ethics and how that problem causes his ethics to be an inadequate mode of expressing his ethico-religious insight. The serious problem with Royce's ethics is that it neglects the origins of ethical experience. The chapter dedicates an entire section to outlining Royce's temporalism, as shown in the second volume of The World and the Individual and his 1910 essay “The Reality of the Temporal”. The chapter then examines Royce's ethics from the standpoint of Levinas's phenomenology, as articulated in Totality and Infinity and Otherwise than Being, Or Beyond Essence.

Keywords:   temporalism, Emmanuel Lavinas, phenomenology, ethics, The World and the Individual, The Reality of the Temporal, Totality and Infinity
