    James is an 'individualist' only because he has so little idea of what an individual is. In these respects, sexual generation is analogous to the process of conscious imitation. The cause to which we should be loyal ought to be worthy, good, supremely good, the best, and valuable. So much for the two processes, so far as we can observe them within the limits of our human consciousness. Secondary Sources Auxier, R, ed. Ideals exist only in the temporal mode of the possible; we are compelled to regard as real the larger intelligible structures within which ideals exist, such as the purposive character of Divine will.

    The five are: reason as a synthesizing power; the will or the volitional; loyalty; the religious mission of sorrow, and the unified community of the spirit. Royce says a loved community may be the object of such active disposition to love and to serve the community as an unit, to treat the community as if it were a sort of super-personal being, and as if it could, in its turn, possess the value of a person on some higher level. When they are successful, they so mass themselves as to form definite centres of new experience. The justification for idealistic postulates is practical a point Royce made repeatedly in his maturity, accepting the label of pragmatist for himselfto the extent that it embraced practical life as the guide and determiner of the value of philosophical ideas. For in God, I am this seeker after God, so soon as I know myself as a Self at all, and, as such a seeker after God, I no longer wholly depend on the finite Self within which I came into being, just as my organism, even in its physical functions, no longer depends on the parent organisms.

    In literal social life, the Ego is always known in contrast to the Alter". An example is profit driven corporations that are often criminally defective communities. Smith, whose summary of Royce was taken as an explanation of the whole of his thought, forming a "bottle-neck" in the interpretation of his thought. Here is an excerpt from a letter to James: ontology, whereby I mean any positive theory of an external reality as such, is of necessity myth-making; that, however, such ontology may have enough moral worth to make it a proper object of effort so long as people know what they mean by it; that philosophy is reduced to the business of formulating the purposes, the structure and the inner significance of human thought and feeling; that an attempted ontology is good only in so far as it expresses clearly and simply the purposes of thought just as popular mythology is good in so far as it expresses the consciousness of a people; that the ideal of a truth-seeker is not the attainment of any agreement with an external reality, but the attainment of a perfect agreement among all truth-seeking beings; that the ethical philosophy is the highest philosophy.

Josiah Royce book

For Royce, Job represents the fundamental psychological fact about the problem of evil, namely, the universal experience of unearned ill-fortune. Although Royce maintained a strong interest in logic, science, evolutionary theory, and natural philosophy throughout his career, religious concerns did figure prominently in a number of his works beginning with his first major publication, The Religious Aspect of Philosophy as well as in his last two major works, The Sources of Religious Insight and The Problem of Christianity.

The union of these two tendencies leads to a constant differentiation of new stages of self-consciousness. The inscription at the entrance to the library Two key influences on the thought of Royce were Charles Sanders Peirce and William James.

Time conceived abstractly in the World of Description, although it can never be wholly spatialized, provides us with an idea of eternity, while time lived and experienced grounds this description and every otherhistorically, ethically, and aesthetically. The last word then is loyalty, love of the individual for the community.

A new individual life, so far as we observe, in the outer world, the signs of its presence, is a new way of behavior appearing amongst natural phenomena. Royce later testified that his own variety of absolute idealism was heavily indebted to James's Will to Believe and to James's view of an idea as a "plan of action," a purpose seeking future realization.

This history is made even more complex, says Royce, due to the influence of the Indic type of God. For in us the will can be base in content, even when it is in form to a great extent of the higher type.

In his most confessional statement, Auxier writes, I do wish to understand why I cannot now, in good conscience, serve the APA as a cause befitting a morally developed human being, and why so many of our institutions have gone the same way. The phenomenology that Peirce and Royce introduced as extra-philosophical shows its value in the way it is developed by Husserl, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty, and is now in the process of reclaiming metaphysics.

Royce, Josiah 1855

Thus, while reading this book, I was especially sensitive to finding answers to the following questions: I How original is Royce and how much can we get from him in our dealing with present challenges and when facing present dilemmas?

He also returned to his earlier concerns with philosophy as a means to understand human life, the nature of human society, of religious experience, ethical action, suffering and the problem of evil. Royce spread himself too thin, however, and in suffered a nervous breakdown which required him to take a leave of absence from his duties.

But when they suggest nothing that permanently accords with the established habits of the Self within which they arise, they are unadapted to their environment, and so pass away. Where previously Royce's hypotheses about ontology had taken for granted that relations are discovered in the analysis of terms, here he moves to the recognition Josiah Royce book terms are constituted by their relations, and insofar as terms are taken to refer to entities, as we must assume, we are obliged to think about individuals as uniquely constituted by a totality of relations to other individuals and to the Whole that are theirs alone.

Principal among the ideas that most clearly distinguish this book is Royce's hypothetical ontology, discovered by Auxier and Dwayne Tunstall, who were surprised that so many had missed it. We takes these sorrows up into our plan of life, give them new meaning as they become part of a new whole. He was never an absolutist in the sense of "giving to philosophical ideas an unconditioned authority over the conduct of life.

But in order to become such a person one has to endure a betrayal of one's own best purposes, what Royce calls "original sin. Le Conte and the poet E. In this connection, Royce reframed two central ideas or principles of pragmatism. In seeking to show the reality of the invisible community, perhaps Royce was seeking communion with his departed son Christopher and his close friend William James, both of whom had died in However, Royce will find individual life and social life insufficient to meet the religious need for salvation.Read Josiah Royce Books Online.
