Historians against history; the frontier thesis and the national covenant in American historical writing since 1830 by David W Noble( Book )

33 editions published between 1964 and 1968 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historians Against History was first published in 1967. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Professor Noble examines the basic philosophy and writing of six American historians, George Bancroft, Frederick Jackson, Charles A. Beard, Carl Becker, Vernon Louis Parrington, and Daniel J. Boorstin, and finds in them a common tradition which he calls anti-historical. He argues that this viewpoint is founded in the frontier interpretation of American history, that American historians have served as the chief political theorists and theologians of this country since 1830, and that their writings can be interpreted as Jeremiads designed to preserve a national covenant with nature

"David W. Noble explains that modern people assume there will be perpetual economic growth because such a utopian conviction is the necessary foundation for bourgeois culture. Noble exposes the cost of the segregation of the physical sciences from the humanities and social sciences, while demonstrating the required movement of the humanities toward the ecological vision of a single, interconnected world."-- Publisher description

"The present work is based upon lectures given at Harvard University in the autumn of 1869, and spring of 1871, and afterwards repeated, wholly or in part, in Boston, New York, Milwaukee, and London.

Dynamic sociology; or, Applied social science, as based upon statical sociology and the less complex sciences by Lester F Ward( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the time of the appearance of the first edition of this work, in 1883, the word sociology was rarely spoken, and when spoken was often condemned--not merely as a word improperly formed, but also as embodying a conception, if not wholly false, at least more or less confused and imaginary. From such humble beginnings as above described, and in the face of such obstacles and open opposition, the science has thus marched steadily forward until its name is now in the mouths not only of students and writers, but also of educationalists and statesmen, and its future culture and popularity are assured. Judging from its rapid rise, and all the signs of the times, it bids fair to become the leading science of the twentieth century, as biology has been that of the nineteenth"--Preface.
