Summary
"The Idea of History is the best-known work of the great Oxford philosopher, historian, and archaeologist R.G. Collingwood. This important work examines how the idea of history has evolved from the time of Herodotus to the twentieth century, and offers Collingwood's own view of what history is. This revised edition has a substantial new introduction which discusses how scholars have responded to Collingwood's classic over the last fifty years"--Publisher's site
