 What is history? book review: The Logic of the History of Ideas
In his effort to demonstrate through his version of the logic of the history of ideas, in which he blurs the distinction between synthetic and analytic propositional forms of knowledge, he attempts to construct and walk a middle road.
In his analysis (of the abstract nature of logics) Bevir claims books like Collingwood's The Idea of History and White's Metahistory confuse the matter by ignoring the logic of explanation which is, of course, the logic of justified belief (deduction and induction).
Locate 'logic', 'history' and 'ideas' together in a book title and it is the kiss of death so far as most jobbing historians are concerned.

 Bevir on 'The Logic of the History of Ideas' (1)
Hence, the logic of the history of ideas considers the nature of meaning, the way we should justify our knowledge of past meanings, and how we should explain things such as the existence of meanings, the beliefs people held, and conceptual change.
To study the history of ideas is to study such meanings, and so culture, from an avowedly historical perspective.
When we study the logic of the history of ideas, we undertake a second-order study of the reasoning appropriate to a discipline.
