The philosopher and historian of culture Wilhelm Dilthey (1833-1911) has had a significant and continuing influence on twentieth-century Continental philosophy and in a broad range of scholarly disciplines. Rudolf Makkreel interprets Dilthey's philosophy and provides a guide to its complex development. Against the tendency to divorce Dilthey's early psychological writings from his later hermeneutical and historical works, Makkreel argues for their essential continuity.

Industry Reviews

"An important contribution to our understanding of Dilthey and the critical philosophy of history."--Else N. Bulhof, The American Historical Review "A work of conscientious and penetrating scholarship."--Melvin Rader, Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism "This is a much-needed book on Dilthey; full-scale and authoritative, situating his thought firmly in its historical context and relating it to major criticisms, both by contemporaries and by successors."--William H. Dray, International Journal for the Philosophy of Religion
