Reconstructing contexts : the aims and principles of archaeo-historicism by Robert D Hume( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reconstructing Contexts attempts to justify and theorize 'old historicism', defining 'archaeo-historicism' as a method by which scholars can reconstruct past context in order to apply it to the interpretation of works and events of that time. If such reconstruction is to be more than wildly impressionistic, it must be grounded in hard evidence handled according to clear rules. In this intriguing and rigorous analysis, Robert D. Hume identifies legitimate objects for reconstruction and proposes procedures and principles by which such interpretation may be pursued. He then examines the failures and limitations of contextual reconstruction, which works only when adequate evidence can be found
