This chapter suggests the correlation of teachers of physical education with that of others who are engaged in moral education. It also summarizes the theses upon which Royce's “Philosophy of Loyalty” is based, as well as a direct application of these theses to a special practical problem of education. Originally an address to the Boston Physical Education Society, Royce argues that physical training could directly support the effort to teach loyalty to youth. Here again, there is a strong connection to the social reform movements of the day, such as the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA). Part of the effort to transform urban communities into environments that fostered growth and citizenship included athletic training. Royce suggests that physical training could make four contributions to the general effort to foster loyalty.
