Applied History | Learn from the past. Plan for the future.

Applied History looks at the past not as a curiosity to be admired behind the glass of museum cases, nor as a way of showing the gradual evolution towards the present. It regards the past as a source of key indicators of how we should progress towards the future. George Santayana’s iconic quote holds true: ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’

This is the blog you should all read and understand. This gentleman (and a scholar!) is better historian and better writer than I will ever be. His only drawback is that he is not an anarchopositivist – but this may cure with time.

Meanwhile – enjoy!
