The Idea of Nature propounds Collingwood's theory of philosophical method applied to the problem of the philosophy of nature. The book is divided into four major sections: Introduction, Greek Cosmology, the Renaissance View of Nature, and the Modern View of Nature. Perhaps more than any of his other books, this one illustrates the breadth of Collingwood's learning and the many-sidedness of his philosophical gifts.

Industry Reviews

"Masterly analyses of the great cosmologies of the past and present. Collingwood breathes life into these speculations by relating them to the current science of the day, or the science that was influential upon them."--Philosophy and Phenomenological Research "Merits the attention and gratitude of the philosophical reader."--The Philosophical Review
