  • History as Thought and Action

    The Philosophies of Croce, Gentile, de Ruggiero and Collingwood
    Rik Peters

    This is the first book-length study of the relationship between Benedetto Croce (1866-1952), Giovanni Gentile (1875-1944), Guido de Ruggiero (1888-1948) and Robin George Collingwood (1889-1943).

  • The Foundations of History

    Collingwood's Analysis of Historical Explanation
    Stephen Leach

    This book provides an exposition and critical examination of Collingwood's philosophy of history, in which Collingwood's views are read in the light of his metaphilosophy.

  • Collingwood and the Crisis of Western Civilisation

    Art, Metaphysics and Dialectic
    Richard Murphy

    This book argues that R.G. Collingwood's philosophy is best understood as a diagnosis of and response to a crisis of Western civilisation. The various and complementary aspects of the crisis of civilisation are explored and Collingwood is demonstrated to be working in the traditions of Romanticism and 'historicism’.

  • Action as History

    The Historical Thought of R.G. Collingwood
    Stein Helgeby

    This study shows how R.G. Collingwood's concepts of action and history developed together.

  • How Good an Historian Shall I be?

    Marnie Hughes-Warrington

    In this book Marnie Hughes-Warrington begins with the facet of Collingwood's work best known to teachers — re-enactment — and locates it in historically-informed discussions on empathy, imagination and history education.

  • Metaphysics, Method and Politics

    The Political Philosophy of R.G.Collingwood
    James Connelly

    This book argues that R.G. Collingwood developed a complete and coherent political philosophy of civilization. In making this case it also demonstrates that Collingwood's philosophical work comprises a unity in which, although there was development, there is no fundamental discontinuity between his earlier and later writings.
