HistoryAtOurHouse Podcast #4: The “Thucydidean” Approach to History:
HistoryAtOurHouse podcast #4 features a segment from the High School class on the topic of what I call the “Thucydidean” approach to history.
Thucydides is the first historian to explicitly identify that history should be pursued for the purpose of instruction, as I discussed recently here. As a tribute to Thucydides, I thus refer to the objective pursuit of knowledge about the past–as opposed to the intrinsicist and subjective approaches–as “Thucydidean.”
