Royce's Personalism

Show Summary Details


This chapter describes how Royce's personalism fits within the American personalist tradition. It notes that Royce is definitely a personalist based on The Personalist Forum, formerly the official slogan of contemporary American personalism, and Erazim Kohak's articulation of personalism. The chapter argues that Royce's personalism is more similar to Boston personalism than Howison's. It analyzes Royce's personalism in light of Rufus Burrow Jr.'s account of Boston personalism in his Personalism: A Critical Introduction. The chapter ends with a discussion of the continued significance of a Roycean personalism in today's intellectual climate.
