Product Description

The Truth of History questions how modern historians, confined by the concepts of their own cultures, can still discover truths about the past

Through an examination of the constraints of history, accounts of causation and causal interpretations, C. Behan McCullagh argues that although historical descriptions do not mirror the past, they can correlate with it in a regular and definable way. Far from debating only in the abstract and philosophical, the author constructs his argument in numerous concrete historical examples and explores a new position between believing that history perfectly represents the past and that history can tell us nothing true of the past.
