Now back in print, The Life and Thought of Josiah Royce reappears in a substantially rewritten and expanded edition of the first comprehensive biography, originally published to great acclaim in 1985. Several years later a large collection of previously unknown and unpublished correspondence and other materials was discovered. This newly discovered material has allowed Clendenning to probe deeper into Royce's personal, professional, and philosophical lives and to strengthen his findings. The result is an even more revealing portrait of this remarkable intellectual figure.

MEDIA REVIEWS
John Clendenning has provided us with a thorough, incisive, affectionate although not hagiographic version of the life and thought of Royce. No stone has been unturned, no document unread, no trouble, no vexation, no weakness left unsaid as Clendenning knits a prose tapestry depicting the odyssey undergone by Royce.
--John J. McDermott, New England Quarterly
Using newly discovered Royce family materials, John Clendenning here brings the Josiah and Katharine Royce of his earlier biography into far more distinct focus. In particular, Josiah's youth in California and his final years with Katharine are wondrously enriched. The result? Josiah Royce, America's philosopher of genuine loyalty and community, finally receives that expert portrayal of his philosophy and biography which Americans urgently need and rightly deserve.
--Frank M. Oppenheim, S.J.
