Abstract:

Collingwood is most famous for his book The Idea of History, a work collated from various sources soon after his death by his pupil, T.M. Knox. The book came to be a major inspiration for philosophy of history in the English-speaking world. Not just a philosopher of history, Collingwood was also a practicing historian and archaeologist, being during his time a leading authority on Roman Britain. Collingwood held history as "recollection" of the "thinking" of a historical personage. Collingwood considered whether two different people can have the same thought and not just the same content, concluding that "there is no tenable theory of personal identity" preventing such a doctrine.
