Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This collection of lectures constitutes the last publication of Josiah Royce, California's preeminent philosopher at the turn of the 20th century. Unlike his early, more theoretical works, these lectures address the sinking of the Lusitania, the Great War, an international scheme insuring against future wars, as well as the title essay: "The Hope of the Great Community". This latter lecture returns to themes on the importance of community and the cause of loyalty that had preoccupied Royce during his last decade. Here Royce stresses the crucial difference between a mere association of individuals engaged in a common purpose and a true community bound together from a common cause or love or loyalty, after the fashion, for example, of Pauline Christianity. Colleagues are no substitute for the personal salvation that comes from sharing a common loyalty to a greater cause than self-interest can provide.
