what does the quote " History, in brief is an analysis of the past in order that we may understand the present and guideour conduct into the future." Sidney Mead

  • social studies -

    So the quote means we are supposed to learn from history so that we don't make the same mistakes again.

    The problem of course is often we see history through rose colored glasses, so that we interpret history in such a way to justify our present conduct.

    Perhaps your generation can do better.
