This chapter examines the development of Royce's ethico-religious insight in many of his writings, ranging from his 1896 essay “ The Problem of Job” to The Philosophy of Loyalty. The chapter claims that in “ The Problem of Job”, Royce lays the foundation for all of his subsequent philosophy, because it is the first essay in which his ethico-religious insight ceases to be in the background and illuminates his entire philosophy, breathing new life into his absolute idealism.

Keywords: The Problem of Job; The Philosophy of Loyalty; absolute idealism; loyalty; ethico-religious insight
