Everything I read on history I do with scepticism

  1. I feel the same. When I do research I find so many different perspectives on historical events that my own conclusions, or what I interpret from the information, can also be very fluid. I try to keep in mind who has recorded the particular account I’m looking at, and what their motive is for giving it. It can be very difficult to see all sides and stay impartial. Can you imagine trying to research the events we are living through today, a hundred years from now? I wonder what kind of manipulation of recorded history will be taking place then.

    • Evwrything is interpretstion, and not just history … think how at the extreme end politicians, journalists, barristers and even witnesses ‘interpret’ their experience.
