Frank M. Oppenheim
Frank M. Oppenheim presents Royce’s Mature Ethics, the first book to examine at length Royce’s ethics. Oppenheim focuses on Royce’s late ethical synthesis of freedom, goodness, and duty within the life of a genuine loyalty within various communities.
“Oppenheim is concerned to rescue Royce not only from neglect but from misconceptions of his work which resulted from the turf wars of the early years of the century, and he does so by a thorough examination of Royce’s ‘epistemology of interpretation’. . . .Readers will find thoughtful and trustworthy comment on many topics, among them loyalty, Royce’s realistic idealism, and his conception of the Logos-Spirit, the Interpreter of interpreters.” — Religion and Literature
