"Rethinking R.G. Collingwood" reviews Collingwood's thought via his own rethinking of Hegel. It establishes the revisionary character of Collingwood's defence of liberal civilization in theory and practice. Collingwood is seen as avoiding the pitfalls of Hegel's teleological historicism by developing an open and contestable reading of the rationality of liberal civilization, which neither reduces practice to theory nor philosophy to history. The contemporary relevance of Collingwood's standpoint is demonstrated by comparing it with those of recent defenders and critics of liberalism Rawls, Lyotard and MacIntyre.

'As well as revealing his familiarity with the unpublished manuscripts, Browning's discussion also demonstrates an impressive mastery of the growing body of secondary literature' - Collingwood Studies

'In his extensively researched and immensely detailed study Rethinking R.G. Collingwood Browning argues that Collingwood is a fully paid up if not altogether uncritical Hegelian.' - History of Political Thought

'This is a close, critical study of Collingwood's published and unpublished works and a comparison between Collingwood and post-Kantian and Hegelian thought.' - Choice
