This volume provides an introduction to a vast body of writing about history, from classical Greece and Rome to the contemporary world. M.C. Lemon maps out key debates and central concepts of philosophy of history, placing principal thinkers in the context of their times and schools of thought. Lemon explains the crucial differences between speculative philosophy as an enquiry into the content of history, and analytic philosophy of history as relating to the methods of history. The first two parts of the book trace each of these traditions, whereas the third part revisits both in the light of contemporary contributions to the discipline. This guide provides a comprehensive survey of historical thought since ancient times, and its clear terminology and lucid argument should make it a useful source for students and teachers alike.
