Description
Summary:Josiah Royce gehört zweifelsohne zu den interessantesten Denkern der klassischen amerikanischen Philosophie im Übergang vom 19. zum 20. Jahrhundert. Sein Werk erstreckt sich über eine große Bandbreite an Themen, von der Psychologie über sozialphilosophische Fragen bis hin zur Metaphysik. Dabei entwickelt Royce im Umfeld von Denkern wie William James oder Charles Sanders Peirce eine Konzeption des Pragmatismus, die er selbst als »absolute pragmatism« bezeichnet, und die um eine Theorie der Gemeinschaft kreist. Die Beiträge des Sammelbandes greifen diese pragmatistische Stoßrichtung seines Werkes auf und diskutieren sie in unterschiedlichen Perspektiven. Gefragt wird u.a. nach Royces Verhältnis zum deutschen Idealismus, nach der Grundlegung seiner Ethik sowie nach seiner philosophischen Gotteslehre und Religionsphilosophie. Dabei kommen durchaus divergierende Einschätzungen seiner Philosophie zum Vorschein, die je für sich von der bleibenden Aktualität seines Denkens für unsere Gegenwart zeugen.InhaltsübersichtBridging Two Continents: Royce between Pragmatism and Idealism Ludwig Nagl: Towards a Globalized Philosophical Discourse on Religion: Royce Re-reads Kant and Hegel in the Light of James and Peirce (thereby opening »Windows to Asian Thought«) – Christoph Seibert: The Ethical Nucleus of Reality.

Josiah Royce was undoubtedly one of the most interesting thinkers of classical American philosophy in the transition from the 19th to the 20th century. His works cover a wide range of subjects from psychology and issues of social philosophy to metaphysics. Surrounded by philosophers such as William James or Charles Sanders Peirce, Royce developed a concept of pragmatism which he himself called »absolute pragmatism« and which was centred around a theory of community. The essays in this edited volume deal with this pragmatistic approach in his work and discuss it from various points of view. Among other things, they explore Royce's relationship to German idealism, the foundation of his ethics as well as his philosophical doctrine of God and his philosophy of religion. This results in rather divergent assessments of his philosophy, each of which is evidence of the enduring relevance of his thinking for the world of today.Survey of contentsBridging Two Continents: Royce between Pragmatism and Idealism Ludwig Nagl: Towards a Globalized Philosophical Discourse on Religion: Royce Re-reads Kant and Hegel in the Light of James and Peirce (thereby opening »Windows to Asian Thought«) – Christoph Seibert: The Ethical Nucleus of Reality.
