The History of History
Retired historian Michael Ensley mentioned this sortof recent article yesterday on the Biblical Studies Group. I'll be thinking about this one for a while. If my book budget wasn't already shot for the year, I might be picking up these two as well. I really need to drive to the library more often. There's just never enough time! ;)

"If I have ever made any valuable discoveries, it has been owing more to patient observation than to any other reason."
-- Isaac Newton
How are you doing my friend. Both works: "The Purpose of the Past: Reflections on the Uses of History" and "A History of Histories: Epics, Chronicles, Romances and Inquiries from Herodotus and Thucydides to the Twentieth Century" seem to be interesting. I'd like to get a hold of them.
