This essay reconstructs Gentile's conception of history as the product of the eternal act of thinking. Peters charts the development of this distinctive position, presenting it as a sustained attempt to unite past and present, fact and value, thought and action within a single theory. He argues, that, despite a number of weaknesses that Gentile neclected to consider and the regrettable, dubious extremes to which he extended his theory in the Fascist period, it deserves greater attention from today's historians of philosophy.
