On History And Philosophy

The purpose of history is to narrate events through which the cultures have evolved. The purpose of philosophy is to make the historical events understandable by demonstrating their inevitability and necessity, and revealing their impact on the present and their implications for the future. Without history, there can be no philosophy. Without philosophy, history will have no significance. A compelling narration of history is a necessary condition for the development of good philosophy.
