Excerpt from The Interpretation of History
But this does not mean that interpretations of history are nothing more than the injection into it of successive prejudices. It means progressive clarification: Each new theory that forces itself upon the attention of historians brin... gs up new data for their consideration and so widens the field of investigation. The greater knowledge of our world to-day reveals the smallness of our knowledge of the past, and from every side scholars are hastening to make the content of history more worthy of comparison with the content of science. From this point of View, therefore, interpretation, instead of assum ing the position of a final judge of conduct or an absolute law, be comes only a suggestive stimulus for further research.
