Lukacs, a renowned historian and prolific author, is as interested in thinking about consciousness as he is in history. He believes that no aspect of thought is more crucial to an adequate understanding of the modern age than the emergence of historical consciousness. This anthology serves as an introduction to Lukacs' diverse writings on such subjects as the process of historical thinking, the work of prominent historians, and the tasks of reading, writing and teaching history.
