New General Editor for Critical Edition Project
After considering the full magnitude of his commitment to promoting the study of John Dewey's thought and to establishing Dewey centers around the world, Professor Larry Hickman resigned from his position as General Editor of the Royce Critical Edition Project. Fortunately, Hickman and the members of the Critical Edition Committee were able to persuade Professor Randall Auxier to undertake the general editorship of the project in Hickman's place. Auxier is both devoted to the advancement of Royce studies and a Royce scholar. He brings impressive editorial skills to the Royce Critical Edition Project from his experience as editor of the Library of Living Philosophers series and "The Pluralist." Auxier plans to work closely with Hickman and the editorial staff at Southern Illinois University as the Royce Critical Edition Project gets under way.
