Although much has been written of the nature of history and its disciplinary problems, less attention has been paid to the history of thought. M.C. Lemon's rigorously philosophical work first re-asserts the discipline of history in general as narrative based, before pursuing the methodological implications for the history of thought.

This original work of scholarship will raise the level of argument in philosophy of history and provoke debate among historians, philosophers, and political theorists.


'This is a powerfully argued book which will feed debate. Its position is carefully and systematically worked out and very clearly presented, with frequent apt, detailed, accessible and extremely helpful examples.' - Political Studies
