Format: Paperback
Originally published in 1964, `Philosophy of History' by William Dray is an instalment in the Prentice-Hall Foundations of Philosophy Series.

As with the other instalments in this excellent series, this is a short book (approx. 150 pages) aimed at introducing the subject, some of its key contributors and issues. The book can be roughly divided into two parts. The first part, discusses the question of what is the philosophy of history. This section touches on important questions; such as is history subjective or objective? And what do these terms mean in this context.

In the latter part, Dray examines the views of three well-known commentators in this field; Hegel, Toynbee and Niebuhr. From my perspective, this aspect is particularly well done. These thinkers, especially Hegel, can be difficult to understand; Dray does a commendable job of situating their views.

Overall it is another excellent addition to an outstanding series. I recommend it to students of philosophy and history.
