Hoppe: History & Theory

"HISTORIANS qua historians CANNOT RATIONALLY DECIDE between incompatible interpretations of the same set of data or sequence of events...the principle ADVANTAGE that the political economist and philosopher has over the mere his knowledge of pure--a priori--social theory, which enables him to avoid otherwise unavoidable errors in the interpretation of sequences of complex historical data and present a theoretically corrected or 'reconstructed,' and a decidedly critical or 'revisionist' account of history."

~Hans Herman Hoppe
