Heathen History

The modern historical profession is Hegelian in the sense that it assumes that the explanation of history lies within itself. Just as the antithesis lies within the thesis and the synthesis within the relationship between the two, so the meaning of history is thought to be comprehended exhaustively in itself. What the historian is unable to explain must be a matter of defective or incomplete sources or of his own limitations in drawing inferences from them. His failure to acknowledge that the explanation of history may lie outside of history is analogous to the naturalism of the physical and biological sciences, which also sees “the whole show” in the artifacts of creation.” (Herbert Schlossberg,Idols for Destruction, p. 23-24).
