Professor Royce on Modern Thinkers.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Professor Josiah Royce is to repeat in New York his course of lectures on Modern Thinkers, recently delivered in Boston with notable success. The general purposes of the course are to give personal characterizations of some of the most noteworthy modern thinkers; to suggest something of the nature of their attitudes towards the great issues of humanity and to illustrate spiritual problems of our day. The subjects are "Spinoza to Kant," "Fichte," "The Romantic Movement in Philosophy," "Hegel," "Schopenhawer," "The rise of the Philosophy of Evolution," "Idealism as a Tendency in Philosophy," "Fate, Law and Freedom," and "Optimism, Pessimism and the Moral Order." The lectures began Saturday and will be given at the houses of Mrs. W. T. Blodgett, Mrs. Charles F. Chandler, Mrs. Henry Draper, Mr. Dunham, Mrs. Henry Holt, Mrs. W. C. Whitney, Mrs. R. W. Gilder, and Mrs. William H. Draper.
