A Translation of HISTORICISM AND ITS PROBLEMS, by Ernst Troeltsch

To support an English translation of Ernst Troeltsch's DER HISTORISMUS UND SEINE PROBLEME, written during the First World War and the early years of the Weimar Republic. The work has relevance for current philosophical questions.

The project is a translation from German of Der Historismus und seine Probleme (Historicism and Its Problems, 1922) by Ernst Troeltsch. The original is 777 pages in length. This book is a landmark study in philosophy of history. It is relevant to the contemporary English-language discussion of historicism (including the "new historicism"). It is also central to the understanding of the thought and political activity of the theologian, philosopher, historian, and sociologist Troeltsch (1965-1923) whose work has been experiencing an international revival of interest for over twenty-five years.
