  • Royce’s interest in Asian philosophies
  • Reconsideration of Royce’s engagement with other classical pragmatists
  • Reassessments of papers in The Philosophical Review (25.3 1916) issue devoted to Royce
  • Royce’s role in bringing attention to the work of Friedrich Nietzsche
  • Royce’s engagement with Continental phenomenology, and comparisons of his work with the British Idealists
  • Royce’s influence on his students, such as W.E.B. DuBois, C.I. Lewis., and George Santayana
  • Royce’s concept of the “Beloved Community” and its adaption by Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Royce’s work as an historian, novelist, and psychologist
