All history is ' contemporary history ' , declared , Croce , meaning that history
consists essentially in seeing the past through the eyes of the present and in the
light of its problems , and that the main work of the historian is not to record , but
The past is intelligible to us only in the light of the present ; and we can fully
understand the present only in the light of the past . To enable man to understand
the society of the past and to increase his mastery over the society of the present
past in the light of the present and of the present in the light of the past . Anything
which , like Antony ' s infatuation with Cleopatra ' s nose , fails to contribute to this
dual purpose is from the point of view of the historian dead and barren .
