Four studies in the history of historiography by Herbert Butterfield
Professor of Modern History in the University of Cambridge
A broadcast version of the four Wiles Trust Lectures delivered before the Queen's University, Belfast, last month.
The critical point on which historical explanation depends is the possibility of maintaining the unique in every individual, event, and moment, while at the same time subjecting the movements of masses and the processes of centuries to analysis and generalisation-without which 'the study- of history could only be a burden on the memory.' In his final lecture Professor Butterfield speaks mainly about Ranke, because, he says,
' I cannot call to mind any historian who confronted this issue as directly as Ranke, and who, without surrendering the principle of uniqueness, so clearly made out the case also for general history.'
