Collingwood’s reasons for believing that categorial analysis should replace rather than complement traditional metaphysics have to do with his belief that there cannot be a study of pure being, that it is not possible for there to be a pure ontology untainted by any epistemological assumptions. Being is known or experienced theoretically, morally or aesthetically, via the presuppositions of the sciences that study nature, conduct and beauty. There is, however, no knowledge or experience of pure being and hence no ‘science’ corresponding to it (no such thing as metaphysics traditionally understood).
Have conceptual knowledge or knowledge of the conceptual distinction between agents and things) but to have correctly identiﬁed one. I do not wish here to try to settle the question whether Kant’s concern was purely conceptual, whether he was concerned purely with the question of establishing the criteria for distinguishing between inner and outer representations, or whether it was also his intention to provide a theory of knowledge which would refute external world scepticism. Whatever stance one takes on the issue of the relationship between transcendental idealism and scepticism, it is clear that Collingwood’s metaphysics of absolute presuppositions is quite explicitly a purely conceptual inquiry.
I argue, ﬁrst, that whereas the pragmatists seek to dissolve traditional philosophical problems, Collingwood seeks to rethink them within a new framework. I argue, second, that whereas the pragmatic rejection of the correspondence theory of truth leads, at least in some cases, to an abandonment of philosophy understood as a normative activity, Collingwood’s speciﬁc brand of anti-realism seeks to defend the idea of philosophy as a normative or, as he puts it, ‘criteriological’ science. 2 He then 38 Collingwood and the realism/anti-realism debate proceeds to provide a concise but important criticism of this thesis.
