Collingwood, New Leviathan

I have been engaged in reading, writing notes on, R. G. Collingwood, The New Leviathan (1942). The following is a list of the articles that comprise those notes so far, along with other articles to which I have assigned the category “New Leviathan.”

  1. A personal overview of Collingwood’s New Leviathan
  2. NL I: “Body and Mind”
  3. NL II: “The Relation Between Body and Mind”
  4. On these articles
  5. NL III: “Body As Mind”
  6. Freedom of will
  7. NL IV: “Feeling”
  8. NL V: “The Ambiguity of Feeling”
  9. NL VI: “Language”
  10. NL VI: “Language,” again
  11. NL VII: “Appetite”
  12. NL VIII: “Hunger and Love”
  13. Facts (NL IX, Retrospect, first 6 paragraphs)
  14. Freedom
  15. Happiness
  16. Thales of Miletus
  17. NL IX: “Retrospect”
  18. NL X: “Passion”
  19. NL XI: “Desire”
  20. NL XII: “Happiness”
  21. NL XIII: “Choice”
  22. NL XIV: “Reason”
  23. NL XV: “Utility”
  24. NL XVI: “Right”
  25. NL XVII: “Duty”
  26. NL XVIII: “Theoretical Reason”
  27. Freedom to Listen
  28. Duty to Nature
  29. Feyhaman Duran
  30. NL XIX: Two Senses of the Word “Society”
  31. NL XX: Society and Community
  32. NL XXI: Society as Joint Will
  33. NL XXII: The Family As a Mixed Community
  34. NL XXIII: The Family As a Society
  35. NL XXIV: The Body Politic, Social and Non-Social
  36. On Chapman’s Homer’s Iliad, Book IX

The list is made automatically by means of “shortcodes,” described in a blog article and in more detail on a support page. I am using in particular the code

display-posts category="New Leviathan" order="ASC" wrapper="ol" posts_per_page="40"

within square brackets in the underlying html file. (If and when I write more than 40 of these articles, I shall have to make an adjustment here.)

These articles contain many quotations from The New Leviathan itself and other books by Collingwood, and a few from books by other writers. I attempt to make my articles locally readable, although there is no predetermined global structure to an article. Reasons to read Collingwood are suggested in the articles themselves. I try to note the connections that I see to other books by Collingwood and to other chapters in The New Leviathan. I note the questions that are suggested to me. In the process, I think I come to some understandings that I did not have before I started writing: this is the purpose of writing in the first place.
