Abstract:

This paper explores Collingwood's and Wittgen-stein's views on magic. It argues that their insights converge at some interesting points. But this is just a tip of the iceberg. For beneath their overlapping views on magic and religion lie their notions of absolute presuppositions (Collingwood) and hinge-propositions (Wittgenstein) which also exhibit striking similarities. At bottom, this paper contends that, although Collingwood and Wittgenstein come fromdifferent intellectual backgrounds, they are essentially philosophers of kindred thought.
