Volume 1 of Critical Edition Selected
According to the Critical Edition Committee, volume 1 of the proposed critical edition of Royce's writings will be The Sources of Religious Insight. Many Royce scholars view Sources as a transition between The World and the Individual (1900-1902) and The Problem of Christianity (1913). Sources is also seen by scholars as a response to William James's The Varieties of Religious Experience. Critical Edition Committee member Jacquelyn Kegley remarked that Sources "fits well into contemporary concerns" and "would have a broad readership community."
