I don't understand what is meant when a question asks you for the "term" Historical significance.

for example:john maynard keynes.
I know everything about him and his economic ideas but, if i was asked to write a short paragraph of his historical significance i wouldn't know what information to include and how to write it. any help?

  • history -

    Historical significance means how his life and theories affected his and later generations.
