This article examines Samuel Taylor Coleridge's lectures on the history of philosophy during the period from 1818 to 1819. It explains that very few people have read Coleridge's Lectures on the History of Philosophy, which he delivered over four teen weeks from 16 December 1818 to 29 March 1819. The article discusses the reasons for the lack of interest in Coleridge's philosophy and highlights the need to read these lectures because they are the first major attempt by a Briton to make important philosophical claims about the history of philosophy.
