An essay on philosophical method by R. G Collingwood( Book )
141 editions published between 1933 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 3,563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"An Essay on Metaphysics is one of the finest works of the great Oxford philosopher, historian, and archaeologist R.G. Collingwood (1889-1943). First published in 1940, it is a broad-ranging work in which Collingwood considers the nature of philosophy, especially of metaphysics. He puts forward his well-known doctrine of absolute presuppositions, expounds a logic of question and answer, and gives an original and influential account of causation. The book has been widely read and much discussed ever since." "In this new edition the complete original text is accompanied by three previously unpublished essays by Collingwood which will be essential reading for any serious student of his thought."--Jacket
The idea of nature by R. G Collingwood( Book )
107 editions published between 1944 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 2,321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Idea of Nature propounds Collingwood's theory of philosophical method applied to the problem of the philosophy of nature. The book is divided into four major sections: Introduction, Greek Cosmology, the Renaissance View of Nature, and the Modern View of Nature. Perhaps more than any of his other books, this one illustrates the breadth of Collingwood's learning and the many-sidedness of his philosophical gifts

The new Leviathan; or, Man, society, civilization and barbarism by R. G Collingwood( Book )
78 editions published between 1942 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The New Leviathan, originally published in 1942, a few months before the author's death, is the book which R.G. Collingwood chose to write in preference to completing his life's work on the philosophy of history. It was occasioned by the Second World War and the threat which Nazism and Fascism constituted to civilization. The book draws upon many years of work in moral and political philosophy and attempts to establish the multiple and complex connections between the levels of consciousness, society, civilization, and barbarism. Collingwood argues that traditional social contract theory has failed to account for the continuing existence of the non-social community and its relation to the social community in the body politic. He is also critical of the tendency within ethics to confound right and duty. The publication of additional manuscript material in this revised edition demonstrates in more detail how Collingwood was determined to show that right and duty occupy different levels of rational practical consciousness. The additional material also contains Collingwood's unequivocal rejection of relativism. David Boucher's introduction shows that The New Leviathan and The Idea of History are integrally related and that neither can be properly understood independently of the other. He is also concerned to show how many of Collingwood's ideas have a contemporary relevance, and that his ideas on barbarism are not so unusual as they might at first appear

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 1,241 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
The philosophy of enchantment studies in folktale, cultural criticism, and anthropology by R. G Collingwood( )
16 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,085 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the long-awaited publication of a set of writings by the British philosopher, historian, and archaeologist R. G. Collingwood on critical, anthropological, and cultural themes only hinted at in his previously available work. At the centre of the book are six chapters of a study of folktale and magic, composed by Collingwood in the mid-1930s and intended for development into a book. Here Collingwood applies the principles of his philosophy of history to problems in the long-term evolution of human society and culture." "The volume opens with three substantial introductory essays by the editors, authorities in the fields of critical and literary history, social and cultural anthropology, and the philosophy of history and the history of ideas; they provide their explanatory and contextual notes to guide the reader through the texts. The Philosophy of Enchantment brings hitherto unrecognized areas of Collingwood's achievement to light, and demonstrates the broad range of his intellectual engagements, their integration, and their relevance to current areas of debate in the fields of philosophy, cultural studies, social and literary history, and anthropology."--BOOK JACKET

Early 20th century historian and philosopher R.G. Collingwood contends here that religion and philosophy are more closely intertwined than previously assumed.
