Josiah Royce

Fordham University Press

This chapter was originally an address to the American Philosophical Association delivered in 1902. At its core, Royce offers a version of the notion of loyalty that was informed by his discussion of the thoughtful public in 1899. The chapter argues that a philosopher's task is specialized and serves larger causes in specific and limited ways. It remains neutral in controversial matters and, in doing so, serves as part of the division of labor required for the sake of humanity's interests. This chapter helps both to set the stage for Royce's later work and lay the ground for the sharp change in his understanding of the practice of philosophy in the last work included here.
