The Dawn Of History


HISTORY, in the widest usage of the word, is the study of events, the discovery and record of what happens; when we speak of Natural History, for example, we mean nothing less than the study of what goes on in Nature, the world about us.

In a rather narrower sense, the "historical" sciences are those in which we cannot make experiments, but are limited to studying what goes on, in that order of time in which things happen to occur. When we describe things, therefore, in their "historical" order, we are stating their distribution in time; just as we give their geographical order when we describe their distribution in space. In this sense, therefore, History is a sister-science to Geography/ Both deal with the arrangement of events, together with the causes and effects of this arrangement.
