More filters. Sort order. A brief guide describing an overview of Western historical thinking. When we read history books or tour a historical museum, we expect to see all of history as it happened-properly.
Sometimes, key groups get omitted or a twist is taken on a certain historical account. And not all done with malice. Sometimes, yes. It's just how people tend to relay history according to various factors. This book discusses this at length. And it's no small task. History no longer sets forth common stories that presumably speak for the identity and experience of all readers. Or if all players in that historical account are included.
It's funny how our history is written, portrayed in books, defined by someone else. Is that person elitist in their portrayal of historical accounts? Have they included all the facts. Did they dilute the facts? These things we take for granted when it comes to history and how it's told. This book is great because it tries to explain why this happens. Jan 31, Lucy Barnhouse rated it it was ok Shelves: history , twentieth-century.
It's lucid enough and But I think that Gilderhus, while dismissing teleological views of history, tends towards a teleological view of historiography. The book is dismissive of premodern history-writing, and doesn't really engage with the tendentious nature of the constructed "western tradition" of history-writing. History is generally presented as, ideally, a rational and objective enterprise, scientific and secular. The cursory overview of various historiographical schools might b It's lucid enough and The cursory overview of various historiographical schools might be useful in conjunction with excerpts from the historians themselves, but I don't find it particularly satisfactory as a teaching text.
Shelves: social-science. The worst explanation of the history of historical research imaginable, disconnected individuals and schools of thought being briefly name-dropped with little to no relation or context and then forgotten for the rest of the book. No through-line or point, just digressions and quotations and bloody Marx everywhere. Central thesis. Have one. Not only was this book a required text for our "Prelude" class as history majors at Colorado State University.
The author was our professor and the department head. Gilderhus was a great instructor with a passion for the subject of history. This book is meant to serve as an introduction to the study of history. Chapter seven, the second to last chapter of the book, remains my favourite. Elsewhere, concepts and schools of thought are briefed over with little explaination. I wish the rest of the book handled issues in this way. I did find the last chapter, on reading and writing history, to be a bit pretentious in nature, and as a history student myself, I understand the need for clear and co Chapter seven, the second to last chapter of the book, remains my favourite.
I did find the last chapter, on reading and writing history, to be a bit pretentious in nature, and as a history student myself, I understand the need for clear and concise writing, but I can't help but think that there should be room for more liberal writing in academia.
Scholars that I've read that have attempted to communicate more freely, I find much more enjoyable. His discouragement of these practices comes off a bit harsh and, as I said, pretentious. Ultimately, this book is a useful tool, and has helped me formulate my understanding of the history of history. May not read again, but I did take quite a few notes I'll return too.
Dec 11, Sasha bahareads rated it liked it. The study of the history of history is an interesting one. Gilderhus does a decent job bringing it to life and showing the different eras in which historical thought was developed. However, Gilderhus shows a dismissive attitude towards any type of religion and pre-literate societies, he did not even try to hide his biases at all.
History and Historians has a lot of good information about historical perspectives and how historical writing was influenced by it but there so much pretentious academic pose that following the narrative can be rather hard.
History and Historians is a decent guide for historical thought throughout history. Feb 22, Vampire Who Baked rated it liked it Shelves: to-be-revisited. Interesting introduction to "history" as theory and practice-- definitional challenges, etc. It would have been more interesting if the first few chapters were condensed and more focus was placed on where these traditional practices fail.
Aug 30, Robert rated it really liked it. Gilderhus clearly identifies and decribes of the major themes and debates among the more important historical thinkers from Herodotus to the s. Includes good lists of recommended readings for each chapter.
As an introductory text it earns 4 stars. Mar 06, Carol rated it liked it. Good info, but buried under too much scholarly prose.
Remove the academic gobbledygook, and this brief volume would reach a much broader audience. Postmodernism and culture wars need more fleshing out than the brief postscript provides. Oct 02, Jay Sandlin rated it liked it. The volume is informative, brisk, and keeps an engaging pace that never left my mind wandering or feeling bored.
Gilderhus encapsulates a large amount of information in a very approachable and easy-to-understand format in cataloging the various historiographical methods of the world's greatest historians and how they viewed history. Gilderhus is largely unable to keep his biases hidden, and holds a great contempt for the Enlightenment thinkers, primarily Voltaire. Gilderhus simultaneously critic The volume is informative, brisk, and keeps an engaging pace that never left my mind wandering or feeling bored.
Gilderhus simultaneously criticizes Voltaire for hating and judging the past, and failing to view previous events in their proper historical context.
Methodology of historiography
A historian is a person who studies and writes about the past and is regarded as an authority on it. If the individual is concerned with events preceding written history , the individual is a historian of prehistory. Some historians are recognized by publications or training and experience. During the Irving v Penguin Books and Lipstadt trial, it became evident that the court needed to identify what was an "objective historian" in the same vein as the reasonable person , and reminiscent of the standard traditionally used in English law of " the man on the Clapham omnibus ". Justice Gray leant heavily on the research of one of the expert witnesses, Richard J. Evans , who compared illegitimate distortion of the historical record practice by holocaust deniers with established historical methodologies. Schneider distils these seven points for what he meant by an objective historian: .
While there is a great desire to explore it, it is equally important to look at the maps which have been used for its exploration. This course presents a survey of the historiography in the Western tradition. Its organization shows that history writing has been an integral part of all phases through which that tradition went. The basic chronological approach adopted in this course is meant to emphasize that contextual quality of historiography and to give an opportunity to demonstrate influences from one period to another. However, a purely chronological approach presents a great temptation of a mere narrative that simply relates one view after the other. The elements of that analysis reflect the continuity of concerns with certain questions prescribed by the structure of human life itself. Who were the prominent historians of any given period?

Туннельный блок наполовину уничтожен! - крикнул техник. На ВР туча из черных нитей все глубже вгрызалась в оставшиеся щиты. Дэвид сидел в мини-автобусе, тихо наблюдая за драмой, разыгрывавшейся перед ним на мониторе. - Сьюзан! - позвал. - Меня осенило.
Это произвело на дешифровщиков впечатление, но тем не менее Беккер продолжал переводить знаки вразнобой, а не в той последовательности, в какой они были расположены в тексте.
В Севилье есть больницы получше. - Этот полицейский… - Клушар рассердился. - Он уронил меня с мотоцикла, бросил на улице, залитого кровью, как зарезанную свинью.
Спасибо, - устало кивнул коммандер. Сьюзан ответила ему теплой улыбкой. Ее всегда поражало, что даже в преддверии катастрофы Стратмор умел сохранять выдержку и спокойствие.
Определить ключ стало столь же математически нереально, как найти нужную песчинку на пляже длиной в три мили. Было подсчитано, что для успешной атаки на стандартный ключ самому быстрому компьютеру АНБ - секретнейшему Крей-Джозефсону II - потребуется более девятнадцати лет. К тому времени когда компьютер разгадает пароль и взломает шифр, информация, содержащаяся в послании, утратит всякую ценность. Оказавшись в условиях подлинного разведывательного затемнения, АНБ выпустило секретную директиву, одобренную президентом Соединенных Штатов.
Немедленно! - Джабба достал из кармана мобильник. - Давайте мне его номер. Я сам позвоню этому… - Не беспокойтесь, - прошептала Сьюзан.
