Book description

An indisputably prominent figure in 20th-century philosophy, R. G. Collingwood often remains elusive even to those who admire his achievements. This volume of new essays aims to re-introduce Collingwood to 21st-century philosophical readers, and to show why, and how, his achievements matter. Each essay offers an original contribution to the understanding of some aspect of Collingwood's thought, including new interpretations of several of his central ideas, re-examinations of his place within 20th-century philosophy, and an extended consideration of a previously undiscussed manuscript. The essays span the wide range of Collingwood's interests, including metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of mind, aesthetics, and political philosophy, as well as Roman history and the history of art. Emphasis is placed on Collingwood's connections to traditions with which his name is not typically linked, including pragmatism, analytic philosophy, and phenomenology. This rich volume will stimulate further examination of Collingwood and his legacy.
