Summary

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. Newly discovered material has allowed John Clendenning to probe deeper into Josiah 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.
