R. G. Collingwood (1889-1943) was a very influential philosopher and historian who taught at Oxford throughout his career. Just before the Second World War broke out, Collingwood joined a group of Oxford students on a sailing voyage to the Greek islands, on which he served as first mate and ship's carpenter. This book is his remarkable diary of that voyage.

A beautiful book. I highly recommend it. A book of travel interwoven with high philosophy is irresistible.
