Christianity and the Problem of History

By Roger Lincoln Shinn | Go to book overview

A Guide TO SOME LITERATURE IN THE FIELD
The study of philosophies of history is only in part a study of literature directly on the subject. In larger part it is the study of the assumptions, sometimes deliberate and more often unconscious, of thinkers on many subjects. Most of the great writings in philosophy, theology, history, political theory, epic and dramatic poetry are relevant. This selective Guide, however, will include for the most part only writings directly on the subject of this volume.Although numerous articles have been mentioned throughout the text, this Guide includes only books, except in a few unusually important cases. If a book is listed in this Guide, the publication data are not included in references to it throughout the preceding text. In the case of books not listed here, publication data have been given with the first reference to the work. Quotations in the text are from the editions here indicated.Titles are here listed under the chapter to which they have primary relevance. No title is listed more than once.
