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

30 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 467 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 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The original text of this uncompleted work has only recently been discovered and is accompanied here by Collingwood's shorter writings on historical knowledge and inquiry. Besides containing entirely new ideas, these incredible writings discuss many of the issues which Collingwood famously raised in The Idea of History and in his Autobiography. This book also includes a lengthy editorial introduction that puts Collingwood's writings in their context and discusses the philosophical questions they initiate. --from publisher description
