Notes za History

History is the study of the past,particularly people and events of the past.
History is a pursuit of common to all human societies. 
Human beings have always been interested in the past, for rmany reasons. History can be a tremendous story, a rolling narrative filled with great personalities and tales of turmoil and triumph. 
Each passing generation adds its own chapter to history while reinterpreting and finding new things in those chapters already written.
 History also gives us a sense of identity; by understanding where we have come from, we can better understand who we are. History provides a sense of context for our lives and our existence, helping us to understand the way things are and how we might approach the future. 
History teaches us what it means to be human, highlighting the great achievements and disastrous errors of the human race.
History also offers hints about how we can organise and manage our societies, for the betterment of all those who live in them. Those starting out in history often consider history and the past to be the same thing. This is not the case. The past refers to an earlier time, the people and societies who inhabited it and the events that took place
History describes our attempts to investigate, study and explain the past. It is a subtle difference but an important one. What happened in the past is fixed in time and
cannot be changed.
 History, however, changes regularly. The word “history” and the English word “story” both originate from the Latin historia, meaning a narrative or account of past events. History is itself a collection of thousands of stories about the past, told by many different people. Because there are so many stories, they are often variable, contradictory and conflicting. And like all stories, history is subject to revision and reinterpretation.
 Each generation looks at the past through its own eyes. It applies different standards, priorities and values and reaches different conclusions about the past.
