The Ideal Self and the Community of Time

December 11, 2019

Written by Josiah Royce

Narrated by Joshua Noyer

"Our definition of the community warrants us in saying that many selves form one community when all are ideally extended so as to include the same object. But unless the ideal extensions of the self thus consciously involve past and future deeds and events that have to do with the objects in question, we shall not use these extensions to help us to define communities."
