"History is for human self-knowledge. Knowing yourself means knowing, first, what it

is to be a person; secondly, knowing what it is to be the kind of person you are; and

thirdly, knowing what it is to be the person you are and nobody else is. Knowing

yourself means knowing what you can do; and since nobody knows what they can do

until they try, the only clue to what man can do is what man has done. The value of

history, then, is that it teaches us what man has done and thus what man is." R. G.
