  1. Historicity as Methodology or Hermeneutics: Collingwood's Influence on Skinner and Gadamer.Kenneth McIntyre - 2008 - Journal of the Philosophy of History 2 (2):138-166.
    In this paper, I offer both a brief study of Collingwood's conception of historical explanation and epistemological historicity, and an examination of the influence of Collingwood's work on the historical methodology of Quentin Skinner and on Gadamer's hermeneutic philosophy. Collingwood's work on the philosophy of history manifests a tension between the realist implications of the doctrine of reenactment and the logic of question and answer on the one hand, and, on the other, the constructionist tendency of the rest of his (...)

    Liberal Education and the Teleological Question; or Why Should a Dentist Read Chaucer?Kenneth B. McIntyre - 2013 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 47 (3):341-363.
    This essay consists of an examination of the work of three thinkers who conceive of liberal education primarily in teleological terms, and, implicitly if not explicitly, attempt to offer some answer to the question: what does it mean to be fully human? John Henry Newman, T. S. Eliot, and Josef Pieper developed their understanding of liberal education from their own intellectual and religious experience, which was informed by a specifically Christian conception of the place of education in a fully developed (...)

    History or Philosophy: Collingwood on Understanding Human Activity.Kenneth McIntyre - 2005 - Collingwood and British Idealism Studies 11 (1):60-93.
    R. G. Collingwood's philosophical work is marked both by its compelling critique of scientific experience and by an unresolved tension between the claims of philosophy and the claims of history. The three works under consideration here, Speculum Mentis, Essay on Philosophical Method, and Essay on Metaphysics, comprise a systematic expression of the character of human understanding in terms of its open-ended, dialectical character, and a sustained critique of the scientific conception of human knowledge as a denial of that character.

    Orwells Despair and Oakeshotts Solution.Kenneth McIntyre - 2009 - Collingwood and British Idealism Studies 15 (1):71-93.
    Most interpretations of Orwell's political thought have concentrated on his critique of the ideology of totalitari-anism, especially as this ideology manifested itself in the 1930's in the Soviet Union under Stalin and in Nazi Germany under Hitler.2 These interpretations have provided valuable insights into Orwell's own perceptions of the dangers of cen-tralized state tyranny. However, they suffer from two weak-nesses connected with the concept of totalitarianism. First, the concept of totalitarianism as it has been developed in aca-demic political science has (...)

    ’What’s Gone and What’s Past Help...’: Oakeshott and Strauss on Historical Explanation.Kenneth B. McIntyre - 2010 - Journal of the Philosophy of History 4 (1):65-101.
    Because of the public identification of both Michael Oakeshott and Leo Strauss as conservative political philosophers, there have been numerous comparisons of their political thought. Whatever similarities or differences that do exist between them, it is certainly true that they shared a keen interest in the history of political thought. However, they understood the character of history in widely divergent ways. In the following paper, I examine the way in which each writer understood the logic of historical explanation, and there (...)

    Critics of Enlightenment Rationalism.Gene Callahan & Kenneth B. McIntyre (eds.) - 2020 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    This book provides an overview of some of the most important critics of “Enlightenment rationalism.” The subjects of the volume—including, among others, Burke, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, T.S. Eliot, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, C.S. Lewis, Gabriel Marcel, Russell Kirk, and Jane Jacobs—do not share a philosophical tradition as much as a skeptical disposition toward the notion, common among modern thinkers, that there is only one standard of rationality or reasonableness, and that that one standard is or ought to be taken from the presuppositions, methods, (...)
