He was ennobled (with the addition of von to his name) in 1865. The history of Europe from the late 15th century onward-in which each people, though sharing one cultural tradition, was free to develop its own concept of the state-seemed to him to confirm his thesis.

This book is fantastic! The Father of the Modern Science of History is covered, along with his perspectives on historical research that impact modern investigatory processes to this day.

One wonders what this great historian could do with access to the modern Internet! If you are a historian, newly entered into your profession, this is a great desktop reference. In fact, anyone performing historical research must own this!

Leopold von Ranke (1795-1886) was a German positivist historian and founder of modern source-based history. This volume contains a large and comprehensive collection of Ranke's writings on history, such as his 1821 essay 'On the Historian's Task,' his manuscript on 'The Role of the Particular and the General in the Study of Universal History,' Prefaces to several of his historical books, etc.

He states, "The historian's task is to present what actually happened. The more purely and completely he achieves this, the more perfectly has he solved his problem... An event, however, is only partially visible in the world of the senses; the rest has to be added by intuition, inference, and guesswork." (Pg. 5) In a later manuscript, he adds, "History is distinguished from all other sciences in that it is also an art. History is a science in collecting, finding, penetrating; it is an art because it recreates and portrays that which it has found and recognized... The difference is that... philosophy and poetry move within the realm of the ideal while history has to rely on reality." (Pg. 33)

He asserts, "It is not necessary for us to prove at length that the eternal dwells within the individual. This is the religious foundation on which our efforts rest. We believe that there is nothing without God, and nothing lives except through God. By freeing ourselves from the claims of a certain narrow theology, we do, nevertheless profess that all our efforts stem from a higher, religious source." (Pg. 38)

He observes, "It is an error prevalent in our times that we attach undue importance to the purposes and influences of governments, princes, and other eminent persons; their memory is frequently loaded with the sins of the multitude, as frequently they have credit for performing what in fact proceeded from the general effort of the community." (Pg. 241) He maintains, "Human institutions are strong only so long as their spirit has vital existence, and exhibits its efficacy in those who wield the powers they create." (Pg. 365)

He concludes, "I think I do not deceive myself, or pass beyond the province of history, in supposing that I here discover one of the universal laws of life. It is unquestionably true that the forces which move the very foundations of the world are always those of the living spirit; gradually prepared in the long course of bygone centuries, they arise in the fulness of time, called forth by natures of intrinsic might and vigor from the unfathomed depths of the human spirit." (Pg. 389)

This excellent collection of Ranke's work will be of extreme interest to any student of history and historiography.
