The Idea of History

Revised Edition

R. G. Collingwood
Edited with an Introduction by Jan van der Dussen

  • 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.
  • Contains Collingwood's first comprehensive statement of his philosophy of history; they are therefore essential for a full understanding of his thought, and in particular for a correct interpretation of The Idea of History itself.
