Abstract and Keywords

This article aims to clarify Josiah Royce's later “Peircean” pragmatist philosophy. The method of investigation is to lay out a two-pronged comparison. The first compares Royce and Peirce regarding a key concept—the Absolute, in its various manifestations—so as to let their differences and disagreements emerge. The second explores some of what Royce and Peirce each had to say about the other's ideas of this key concept, and about their own ideas in comparison with the other. These are two thinkers who over a period of many years actually communicated with one another, directly and indirectly, personally and publicly, about precisely the issues that concern us.

Keywords: Josiah Royce, pragmatist philosophy, idealism, transcendentalism, pragmatism, the absolute
