My first purpose when I undertook the subject of Professor Royce's philosophy was to make a thorough comparative study of his various works. The difficult character of his conceptions and the somewhat formidable volume of his writings made this a greater labor than I could at this time undertake. Moreover, it was less necessary than I had at first supposed. In the "World and the Individual" are to be found his conclusions, matured and systematized. His own account of the relations of his various works is to be found in the prefaces of the two volumes of the book under discussion.
