Dilthey is a figure of real importance in European philosophy and social theory. He exerted a significant influence on Husserl, Heidegger and Weber (among others) through his work on the nature of philosophy and the methodology and epistemology of human and social studies. He was also a distinguished and original historian of ideas and, indeed, many of his philosophical interests arose from the insights and practical difficulties he encountered as a historian. He produced a monumental biography of Schleiermacher, and a series of shorter, but no less striking studies of Hegel, Dickens, Shakespeare, Schiller and many others.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...Over three and a half decades later, Rickman's book carries the hope of introducing Dilthey to a new generation of readers.... Rickman's Selected Writings provides an excellent introduction to Dilthey. Rickman provides a brief survey of Dilthey for those who are unfamiliar with his work. He includes passages on a variety of topics and methods that Dilthey explored, and thus grants this thinker the broad scope he deserves. Rickman also provides helpful commentary which connects the various themes and underlines the coherence of Dilthey's thought as a whole. In addition, Rickman orients the reader by providing a general introduction with a summary of key concepts, as well as section introductions to give information about the excerpts: why they were selected, and the significance of each selection for Dilthey's philosophical project. Rickman unravels the ideas and explains them in clear, relatable terms. As a whole, the book is very approachable." --Rebecca Hansen, Emory University, Philosophy Now
