The principles of history : and other writings in philosophy of history by R. G Collingwood( )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 1,244 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volume, accompanied by further writings by Collingwood on historical knowledge and inquiry selected from previously unpublished manuscripts held at the Bodleian Library, Oxford.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."--Résumé de l'éditeur

"The Idea of History is the best-known work of the great Oxford philosopher, historian, and archaeologist R.G. Collingwood. This important work examines how the idea of history has evolved from the time of Herodotus to the twentieth century, and offers Collingwood's own view of what history is. This revised edition has a substantial new introduction which discusses how scholars have responded to Collingwood's classic over the last fifty years"--Publisher's site
History as a science : the philosophy of R.G. Collingwood by W. J. van der Dussen( Book )

44 editions published between 1981 and 2020 in English and Dutch and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its appearance in 1981 History as a Science has been welcomed as a coherent and comprehensive review and analysis of the many aspects of Collingwood's philosophy of history, the development of his views, and their reception. The book was the first to pay extensive attention to Collingwood's unpublished manuscripts, and to his work as an archaeologist and historian. With the publication of this volume Jan van der Dussen opened up a new angle in Collingwood studies. The republication of this volume meets an increasing demand to make the book available for future Collingwood scholars, and people interested in Collingwood's philosophy. Apart from verbal changes to improve readability and a new pagination, the manuscript is the same as the original. Some appraisals of the original edition 'I cannot doubt that this book belongs in the library of every scholar who is interested in the philosophy of Collingwood' (Leon J. Goldstein, State University of New York at Binghamton) 'Van der Dussen has cleared the way for a new stage of Collingwoodian studies and has indicated directions in which such studies can now most fruitfully proceed' (William H. Dray, University of Ottawa) 'Future students of Collingwood will have to take into account not only the manuscript collection but also this book' (D.W. Bebbington, University of Stirling) 'This is an important and exciting book' (W. von Leyden) 'Van der Dussen's book opens a new era in Collingwood studies' (E.O. Golob, Wesleyan University) 'As expositor of his [Collingwood's] thinking, van der Dussen has been solidly successful; archaeologists, often no less than philosophers, should welcome this big and lucid book' (Christopher Hawkes)
The history of the idea of Europe by Pim den Boer( Book )

22 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book puts the idea of Europe in its historical context, tracing it back to the ancient Greeks and their association of Europe with political freedom. From this starting point the first essay shows how Europe became identified with Christendom in the fifteenth century and with 'civilization' in the eighteenth, before being used by nineteenth-century reformers and reactionaries either to promote change or to defend the status quo." "Twentieth-century developments are the focus for discussion in the other two essays. A number of 'projects' for Europe are examined against the background of the two world wars, consideration is given to recent trends towards political and economic integration and an assessment is offered of the contemporary relevance of the European idea."--Jacket
The idea of history by R. G Collingwood( Book )

21 editions published between 1970 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author examines how the idea of history has evolved from the time of Herodotus to the twentieth century, and includes his own idea of the nature of history. Furthermore, this new edition presents his most important lectures on the philosophy of history from manuscripts which have only recently become available. These lectures contain his first comprehensive statement of his philosophy of history and throw valuable light on his other work." [Back cover]

The history of the idea of Europe by Pim den Boer( Book )

31 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the collapse of the Soviet Union, the re-emergence of central Europe and moves towards monetary, economic and political union within the European Union, Europe in the 1990s is at a crossroads. But what does Europe, and being European mean? What kind of Europe are we building and why? How does this new Europe relate to the Europe of the past? This book puts the idea of Europe in its historical context, tracing it back to the ancient Greeks and their association of Europe with political freedom. From this starting point the first essay shows how Europe became identified with Christendom in the fifteenth century and with 'civilisation' in the eighteenth, before being used by nineteenth-century reformers and reactionaries for their different political purposes. Twentieth century developments are the focus for discussion in the last two essays. A number of 'projects' for Europe are examined against the background of the two world wars, consideration is given to recent trends towards political and economic integration and an assessment is offered of the contemporary relevance of the European idea
Studies on Collingwood, history and civilization by W. J. van der Dussen( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is divided into three parts. The first explores various aspects of Collingwood's philosophy of history, offering a follow-up to themes discussed in the author's revised edition of History as a Science. The Philosophy of R.G. Collingwood(Springer, 2012). After a general introduction to Collingwood's philosophy of history, his manuscript The Principles of History of 1939 is discussed. This manuscript was considered 'lost' for some time but has been rediscovered in 1995. Other topics dealt with are Collingwood's philosophy of history in the year of his An Autobiography(1939), the philosophical context of his re-enactment theory, his views on the notions of process, progress, and civilization, as well as his unusual claim that history is a science. The following four essays of the second part deal with various aspects relating to the study of history and historiography. As regards the latter subject, attention is paid to the works of Herodotus and Toynbee, who correspond in having a wide scope and having been under debate. With respect to the study of history, the crucial notion of evidence is addressed, while a critical appraisal is made of the way the idea of a 'real' past is dealt with by Ankersmit. The third part of the volume discusses issues related to Western civilization and culture, and topics that are of global relevance. Both are dealt with from a historical and philosophical perspective. The first two essays focus on the rupture that occurred in Europe since the end of the eighteenth century as regards the relationship between past, present, and future, resulting in a loss of historical consciousness, and feelings of disorientation and crisis. The last three essays address the global issues of the responsibility for future generations and universal human rights, as well as the more general theme of the relationship between the West and the non-Western world

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

2 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 17 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
