This re-creation of the Essay makes a speciality of Collingwood's contribution to metaphilosophy and locates his argument for the autonomy of philosophy opposed to the 20 th century development to naturalize its subject material. Collingwood argues that the differences which philosophers make, for instance, among the innovations of responsibility and application in ethical philosophy, or among the innovations of brain and physique within the philosophy of brain, should not empirical taxonomies that minimize nature on the joints yet semantic differences to which there may perhaps correspond no empirical periods. This id of philosophical differences with semantic differences offers the foundation for a controversy opposed to the naturalization of the subject material of philosophy for it involves that no longer all options are empirical techniques and never all classifications are empirical classifications. Collingwood's clarification of why philosophy has a particular subject material therefore constitutes a transparent problem to the venture of radical empiricism.

While no longer wasting sight of its historic context, the creation to this new version seeks to find Collingwood's account of philosophical process opposed to the history of up to date matters concerning the destiny of philosophy within the age of technological know-how. This quantity additionally features a significant quantity of formerly unpublished fabric: "The Metaphysics of F. H. Bradley," "Method and Metaphysics," and Collingwood's interesting correspondence with Gilbert Ryle. The latter will end up to be a mine of data for an individual attracted to the origins of analytic philosophy.
