Academic Meeting
Royce's Legacy

A Conference in Honor of Rev. Frank Oppenheim, SJ

In recent years the work of Josiah Royce has drawn increased attention from scholars and thinkers all over the world. Since its formation in 2003, the Josiah Royce Society has promoted scholarly activities related to Royce’s ideas in a far-ranging series of national and international conferences. In recognition of the fact that this recent revival of Royce’s philosophy is due largely to the exemplary work of Frank Oppenheim, the Royce Society has decided to honor Oppenheim with a conference at Xavier University in Cincinnati, where he taught from 1961-2003.

We now invite submissions to this special meeting in honor of Frank Oppenheim. We welcome papers on any aspect of Royce’s philosophy, but we especially encourage papers that deal explicitly with Oppenheim’s contributions to Royce scholarship and to American philosophy.

Please send submissions of 3000 words or less to Kevin Harrelson ( by February 1, 2014.

Frank Oppenheim was born in Coldwater, Ohio, in 1925 and studied at Xavier, Loyola, and Saint Louis Universities. He is author of four books on Josiah Royce’s philosophy, the most recent of which (Reverence for the Relations of Life: Re-imagining Pragmatism via Josiah Royce’s Interactions with Peirce, James and Dewey) was published in 2004.
