Most widely held works by George Holmes Howison
The conception of God. A philosophical discussion concerning the nature of the divine idea as a demonstrable reality by Josiah Royce( Book )

17 editions published between 1897 and 2009 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1897 volume constitutes a rigorous debate between Royce and three other scholars: Professor Joseph Le Conte, Professor G.H. Howison, and Professor Sidney Edward Mezes. Royce's title essay is followed by criticisms from each professor. Royce then responds to his critics, defending his original thesis, which derives from his idealist philosophy
The limits of evolution : and other essays illustrating the metaphysical theory of personal idealism by George Holmes Howison( Book )

26 editions published between 1895 and 2012 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The thread connecting the following essays is already indicated on the title page. They all illustrate, each from the field of its own subject, the metaphysical theory which I venture to call Personal Idealism. Partly, they show how this theory draws its arguments, as if unexpectedly, from the discussion now of this topic taken up for its own philosophical interest, and now of that; partly, they in turn reflect the light of the theory upon the discussion of the topic. To the running reader, the several papers, with titles so widely divergent, would hardly suggest any common trend of thought. They all have it, however; in fact, taken together, they may be said to present the mentioned philosophic theory in its bearings on all the chief human concerns, on knowledge, joy, and devotion; on Science, Art, and Religion. Still, in view of the great diversity of their subjects, one might easily fail of a clear and firm seizure of the thought that unites them, unless the clue were given by some words of introduction"--Preface.
