This set collects the most important responses to the philosophy of Josiah Royce (1855-1916), perhaps the most influential philosophical idealist America has yet produced. Royce's works in theology, metaphysics, logic, history, psychology, epistemology, social policy, ethics, and even his fiction are still widely read and discussed. These volumes contain reviews of his most important books and ideas and therefore should be of use to the study of American philosophy and the history of philosophy. Volumes one and two bring together items published about Royce during his lifetime and volume three reprints in its entirety the collection of essays assembled by the editors of the "Philosophical Review" in honour of Royce's 60th birthday. It is scarce and contains classic essays by the leading lights of American thought, such as John Dewey, Morris R. Cohen, William Ernest Hocking and C.I. Lewis.
