History as a Science
Since its appearance in 1981 History as a Science has been welcomed as a coherent and comprehensive review and analysis of the many aspects of Collingwood’s philosophy of history, the development of his views, and their reception. The book was the first to pay extensive attention to Collingwood’s unpublished manuscripts, and to his work as an archaeologist and historian. With the publication of this volume Jan van der Dussen, opened up a new angle in Collingwood studies. The republication of this volume meets an increasing demand to make the book available for future Collingwood scholars, and people interested in Collingwood’s philosophy. Apart from verbal changes to improve readability and a new pagination, the manuscript is the same as the original.
