About history
Henry Immerwahr’s insistence that
“history is is not solely a rational construct based on evidence, but, more than
that, a collective memory in which men acquire self-knowledge by the
contemplation of the past. History is, as it were, mankind’s autobiography, and
thus, at any one moment, it reaffirms the relation between past and present in
a new way. The historian, in noting and defining these connections, is not a
scientist working in isolation, but participates in the “stream of
consciousness” of his own generation. . . . The historian reconstructs the past
by using all the aspects of imagination except invention. All history, like poetry,
is myth, for history is representation and interpretation in concrete form”.
Euben, p. 49-50
Heródoto (s. V aC)
