Why study history? One of my history professors once said he studies history for the same reason some people climb mountains – because it’s there. Another reason given for studying history, and a popular quote, that those who do not remember the past are condemned to relive it. Although this is partly true, I don’t think many people have taken this to heart, especially politicians. I study history mainly because I’m curious. I want to know why things are the way they are today. I believe that if more people knew history, they could make better decisions, especially pertaining to things such as government, environment, and foreign relations. Unfortunately, most people do not want to know and do not care. In a way it’s sad, and in a way I understand – people are busy enough with their everyday lives -there’s enough worries for today. Why do you study or are interested history? What uses are there for history?
