"History cannot be an ‘exact' science as regards the characteristics we demand of exact sciences, for historical personages are not a material substance. They are not part of the universal processes and phenomena. They cannot produce identical results. History consists of human beings, not machines. For these very reasons, when touching the past we subconsciously assume predilections through which we project our personal nature. Tacitus's recommendation to write ‘without anger and bias' may be a good recipe for cooking. But it is a rule hard to follow when explaining the complicated and multi-faceted deeds of people."
