Read full description of the books:Ostensibly an autobiography, this is actually an account of the philosopher R. G. Collingwood's intellectual life. Seeing him (quickly) through his Kant-browsing childhood, it focuses principally on his 20s and 30s - presumably the period that he felt was most crucial in the development of his thinking. His ideas about meaning (it's all about context and the question that a proposition is answering), history (necessary if one is to think about the context of a philosopher's thought) and 'realism' (wrong) are outlined. His feelings about moral degeneration in the aftermath of the great war and with world war two imminent are expressed. Very readable but only recommended for those with a particular interest in the history of ideas.
