Sample text

They have been often mistaken for independent entities, existing before and outside of the process of the historical study. " Certain historians have deliberately sought to reduce themselves to the role of reporters, but even reporters must be interpretative and selective, if they want to be intelligible. In fact, historical sources cannot be handled simply as "relics," "traces," or "imprints" of the past. Their function in the historical research is quite different. They are testimonies rather than traces.

But "typical men" are different from real 48 Christianity and Culture men of flesh and blood. Of similar character are also our sociological generalizations: the city-state of Ancient Greece; the feudal society; capitalism; democracy; and so on. The main danger of all these generalizations is that they overstress the inner "necessity" of a particular course of behavior. A man, as a "type" or a "character," seems to be predestined to behave in his "typical" manner. There seems to be a typical pattern of development for each kind of human society.

As H. I. " 'Now, the kind of questions a particular historian is actually asking depends ultimately upon his stature, upon his total personality, upon his dispositions and concerns, upon the amplitude of his vision, even upon his likes and dislikes. One should not forget that all acts of understanding are, strictly speaking, personal, and only in this capacity of personal acts can they have any existential relevance and value. One has to check, severely and strictly, one's prejudices and presuppositions, but one should never try to empty one's mind of all presuppositions.
