An Essay on Philosophical Method includes the main sustained dialogue within the 20th century of the subject material and approach to philosophy and an unheard of clarification of why philosophy has a particular area of enquiry that differs from that of the sciences of nature. This new version of the Essay makes a speciality of Collingwood's contribution to metaphilosophy and locates his argument for the autonomy of philosophy opposed to the 20th century development to naturalize its material. Collingwood argues that the differences which philosophers make, for instance, among the suggestions of accountability and software in ethical philosophy, or among the ideas of brain and physique within the philosophy of brain, aren't empirical taxonomies that reduce nature on the joints yet semantic differences to which there might correspond no empirical periods. This identity of philosophical differences with semantic differences presents the root for a controversy opposed to the naturalization of the subject material of philosophy for it involves that no longer all techniques are empirical recommendations and never all classifications are empirical classifications. Collingwood's rationalization of why philosophy has a particular subject material therefore constitutes a transparent problem to the undertaking of radical empiricism.

While no longer wasting sight of its ancient context, the creation to this re-creation seeks to find Collingwood's account of philosophical technique opposed to the heritage of up to date issues in regards to the destiny of philosophy within the age of technology. This quantity additionally features a colossal quantity of formerly unpublished fabric: "The Metaphysics of F. H. Bradley," "Method and Metaphysics," and Collingwood's attention-grabbing correspondence with Gilbert Ryle. The latter will end up to be a mine of knowledge for somebody attracted to the origins of analytic philosophy.
