History as re-enactment : R.G. Collingwood's idea of history by William H Dray( Book )

34 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A central motif of R. G. Collingwood's philosophy of history is the idea that historical understanding requires a re-enactment of past experience. However, there have been sharp disagreements about the acceptability of this idea, and even its meaning. This book aims to advance the critical discussion in three ways: by analysing the idea itself further, concentrating especially upon the contrast which Collingwood drew between it and scientific understanding; by exploring the limits of its applicability to what historians ordinarily consider their proper subject-matter; and by clarifying the relationship between it and some other key Collingwoodian ideas, such as the place of imagination in historical inquiry, the sense in which history deals with the individual, the essential perspectivity of historical judgement, and the importance of narrative and periodization in historical thinking
The principles of history : and other writings in philosophy of history by R. G Collingwood( Book )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published here for the first time is what was completed of a final and long-anticipated work on philosophy of history by the renowned Oxford philosopher, historian, and archaeologist R. G. Collingwood (1889-1943). The original text of this work has only recently been discovered in the archives of Oxford University Press. Also found there were two conclusions written by Collingwood for lectures which were eventually revised and published as The Idea of Nature, but which have relevance to his philosophy of history as well. These pieces are included in this volume, accompanied by further writings by Collingwood on historical knowledge and inquiry selected from previously unpublished manuscripts held at the Bodleian Library, Oxford. All these writings, besides containing entirely new ideas, discuss further many of the issues that Collingwood is famous for having raised in The Idea of History and in his Autobiography."--BOOK JACKET
