The Essay On Philosophical Method is exciting because it initiated his 'series of books' on history and philosophy. I have no idea about this issue of a series. But while looking at his Autobiography I realized that he had planned a series of books.
What is this series that Collingwood speaks of? He had accumulated knowledge he believed valuable to the public and somehow planned a series of books, which, presumably, would culminate in The Principles Of History (which was never finished).
I really want to get my hands on a copy of what was published as The Principles Of History but which is just a fragment of what it probably would have been. But that book is a bit pricy. It is rare.
I need to get it!
I'll read it eventually.
But I'm super excited to have An Essay On Philosophical Method in the mail. I'll swallow that up when I finish Delanda, perhaps. Or whenever I feel like it.
