This paper explores the role of empathy and detachment in historical explanation by comparing Collingwood and Hume’s philosophies of history to Brecht and Stanislavki’s theories of theatre. I argue that Collingwood’s notion of re-enactment shares much more with Hume and Brecht than it does with Stanislavski. This enables a just medium between rationalistic and empathetic accounts of historical understanding, as recently put forth by Mark Bevir and Karsten Stueber respectively.
