Royce's Legacy: A Conference in Honor of Rev. Frank Oppenheim, SJ

April 4-6, 2014

Xavier University, Cincinnati OH

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.
