Limited historical method

Other Names:
Ignorance of history

The prevailing method of viewing history is inadequate to appropriate the cultures of the past. A new posture needs to be adopted which not only looks into the past but also anticipates the future and enables full social engagement. Until this occurs, people will remain trapped in traditional practices and customs.


History doesn't repeat itself -- historians merely repeat each other.
