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's philosophy of history is also located in relation to recent and current philosophy. Although the author argues that Collingwood's conception of the subject matter of history may require some revision, he is generally sympathetic to the aims and methods of Collingwood's project. Indeed, the author hopes to demonstrate that these aims and methods are still of great value.

Keywords: Collingwood, philosophy of history, metaphilosophy, Oxford realism, logical posivitism, scale of forms, metaphysics, ontological argument, intuition, Ryle, critical history, scientific history, reenactment, Popper, Gardiner, simulation theory, causation, radical conversion hypothesis, historical methodology, scepticism
