This book is about the presuppositions of historical knowledge. It rejects the view, held by Hume, Hegel and Vico, that historical knowledge presupposes a theory of human nature, in favour of the view that the discovery of new historical knowledge assumes the inheritance of a body of knowledge sufficient to constitute a determinate sense of the past.
