    I salute the citations of Robin George Collingwood than whom no English philosopher influenced me so much in my thinking and writing. One third of one of my shelves is lined with his books. I first cited his historical method in my book In Defense of Schreber Soul Murder in Psychiatry which was picked up by the late James Grotstein who loved my book and the presentations on Schreber both in Cerisy-la-Salle in 1993 and at the meeting of the then American Academy of Psychoanalysis in Santa Barbara.

    Collingwood is relevant to the psychoanalytic method of healing and research: in his book The Idea of History he outlined the process of visualizing a historical past by a historian is akin to the psychoanalyst’s visualizing the patient’s past in the process of free association, and I cite this in a forthcoming chapter on history and psychoanalysis.

    Collingwood also made an important contribution to the understanding of Evil and Barbarity in his book The New Leviathan which I cite in my forthcoming article on violence as evil.

    Collingwood should be read today for the wealth of his ideas and the charm of his prose.
