Gerda Lerner
Learning from History
printer friendly version
We can learn from history how past generations thought and acted,
how they responded to the demands of their time and how they
solved their problems. We can learn by analogy, not by example,
for our circumstances will always be different than theirs were.
The main thing history can teach us is that human actions have
consequences and that certain choices, once made, cannot be
undone. They foreclose the possibility of making other choices and
thus they determine future events.
