Editorial Reviews

Review

"T[ucker]'s book is a useful reference both for those who are involved in the philosophy of history and those who study history of historiography, as it can join scientific rigour and a very clear and involving esposition."
-Gabriella Vanotti, Universita Cattolica Milano, The Classic Bulletin

Book Description

How do historians, comparative linguists, biblical and textual critics and evolutionary biologists establish beliefs about the past? How do they know the past? This book presents a philosophical analysis of the disciplines that offer scientific knowledge of the past. Aviezer Tucker's central claim is that historiography as a scientific discipline should be thought of as an effort to explain the evidence of past events. This is an important, fresh new approach to historiography and will be read by philosophers, historians and social scientists interested in the methodological foundations of their disciplines.
