Overview

A transitional book in the development of Royce's thought, originally published in 1908, The Philosophy of Loyalty is a key to understanding his influence on the development of pragmatism. Royce's basic argument is clear. Individual wills are a given, and social training is a natural aspect of community.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This new edition of The Philosophy of Loyalty, with the addition of John McDermott's excellent introduction, should stimulate a lively debate among moral theorists. As one of the first volumes in the Vanderbilt Library of American Philosophy, it foretokens an outstanding series of publications.
—John Clendenning, author of The Life and Thought of Josiah Royce
Booknews
**** First published in 1908 (The Macmillan Company), this important work, cited in BCL3, has long been out-of-print. Royce (1855-1916) discusses how loyalty to a cause unites individuals into a community, but fanatical loyalty to causes often has inimical results. Provides a key to understanding Royce's influence on the development of pragmatism. With a new introduction. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
