Giuseppina D'Oro explores Collingwood's work in epistemology and metaphysics, uncovering his importance beyond his better known work in philosophy of history and aesthetics. This major contribution to our understanding of one of the most important figures in history of philosophy will be essential reading for scholars of Collingwood and all students of metaphysics and the history of philosophy.
Giuseppina D'Oro is lecturer in philosophy at the University of Keele, UK.
'The book is a beautifully written, well-argued and controversial contribution to some fundamental debates in Collingwood scholarship. It locates and connects Collingwood's work in relation to key issues of twentieth century philosophy and convincingly makes the case for his continuing philosophical relevance.' - The Philosopher's Magazine
'A close reading of Collingwood through the foil of Kantian philosophy ... a remarkable book.' - Colloquy
