Philosophy of history by William H Dray( Book )

46 editions published between 1964 and 1993 in 6 languages and held by 1,528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This update of the original version focuses on six central problems in the critical philosophy of history and explores the connections among them. Starting with the fundamentals of each philosophical topic in history and then delving into the specifics of each to better understand the surrounding issues, the reference first offers a comprehensive introduction into these topics then covers explanation and understanding, objectivity and value judgment, causes in history, the nature and role of narrative, and historical determinism
The principles of history : and other writings in philosophy of history by Robin George Collingwood( )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 1,273 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volume, accompanied by further writings by Collingwood on historical knowledge and inquiry selected from previously unpublished manuscripts held at the Bodleian Library, Oxford.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."--Jacket

33 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and Portuguese and held by 1,055 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Dray defends Collingwood against a good deal of recent criticism, while pointing to ways in which his position requires revision or development. History as Re-enactment draws upon a wide range of Collingwood's published writings, and makes considerable use of his unpublished manuscripts. It is the most systematic study yet of this central doctrine of Collingwood's philosophy of history, and will stand as a landmark in Collingwood studies

Principles of History, The by R. G Collingwood( )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published here for the first time in paperback is much 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 uncompleted work was only recently 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 short 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 which Collingwood is famous for having raised in The Idea of History and in his Autobiography. A lengthy editorial introduction sets these writings in their context, and discusses philosophical questions to which they give rise.; The editors also consider why Collingwood left The Principles of History unfinished at his death, and what significance should be attached to the fact that it contains no reference to one of his best-known ideas: that of historical understanding as re-enactment. This volume will be a significant publication not just in Collingwood studies but in philosophy of history generally
