Josiah Royce: od idealistycznego panteizmu do idealistycznego personalizmu
JOSIAH ROYCE: FROM IDEALISTIC PANTHEISM TO IDEALISTIC PERSONALISM
Languages of publication
In the paper I discuss the problem of the evolution of Josiah Royce’ s philosophy from a Neo-Hegelian and rather impersonal idealism to a kind of idealistic personalism. I present Royce’s views on the relationship between individuals, community, and the Absolute. However, Royce changed his views on these matters. As a result of allegations of being an impersonal pantheist Royce revised his original point of view. Regarding his mature works, following some Roycean scholars, I argue that Royce’s late idealism may be considered to be a kind of personalism, although Royce himself never used this term. This personalism has some specific features, such as an ethics of loyalty and a triadic interpretative epistemology.
