Royce/Peirce Correspondence

This section of the Royce Edition website seeks to capture the correspondence between Josiah Royce and Charles Peirce.  This correspondence is primarily about matters of logic and metaphysics.  

The manuscripts posted in this section include numerous logical symbols.  We did the best we could in transcribing these symbols.  More expect logicians are most welcome to correct our transcriptions.

The transcriptions of the Royce letters to Peirce are those by John Clendenning from his published volume, The Letters of Josiah Royce (University of Chicago Press, 1970.)
