The eonic effect and the study of history//The Historical Profession is Committing Slow-Motion Suicide

The study of history based on a simplified, non-theoretical or speculative empirical outline might rescue history from its drift into meaninglessness via specialization. Such a course would integrate religion/secularism,humanities, science and its history, philosophy of history, the history of philosophy, questions of evolution and cosmology, etc…The list is long. This could hardly be hoped for in the current culture, but there have been distant cousins to this, e.g. the classic humanities courses of the last generation with their integrated reading lists.
