Williams College/John William Miller Fellowship Fund

About: Williams College, in conjunction with the John William Miller Fellowship Fund, offers essay prizes and research fellowships to advance the study of the philosophy of John William Miller. Miller, who studied under William Ernest Hocking at Harvard and taught at Williams College from 1924 to 1960, focused on the debate between realism and idealism, as well as the dispute between pragmatism and idealism. His philosophy is a hybrid insofar as Miller consciously sought a middle route through these oppositions. As such, in his thinking Miller brings together and shows the mutual dependence of the real and the intellectual, the practical and the ideal, the finite and the universal, and action and infinity. Indeed, Miller referred to his position, somewhat paradoxically, as "historical idealism” and "naturalistic idealism.” His six published books are available from W. W. Norton. The most recent volume is titled The Task of Criticism: Essays on Philosophy, History, and Community.
