(p.1) Introduction
Coleridge’s Philosophy

Mary Anne Perkins

Oxford University Press

Much of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's work has been published for the first time in recent years. In the light of new revelations consequent upon this and upon the availability of the new critical editions of works previously published, his place in the history of ideas is being reassessed. It is one of the aims of this book to contribute to this process, to suggest that Coleridge's importance is even now underestimated. It also argues that he developed, on the ground of the Logos principle and in his ‘logosophic’ system, a framework for the reconciliation of thought, faith, and experience which is potentially as generative of critical thought in the areas of psychology, philosophy, and religion. This book aims to show that the Logos is the unifying factor of Coleridge's ‘system’ and the key to understanding every area of his thought after 1805.
