Leopold von Ranke

Leopold von Ranke
b. 12-21-1795; Wiehe, Electorate of Saxony
d. 5-23-1886; Berlin

Leopold von Ranke is considered one of the founders of modern source-based history. He proposed that every age or period of history is unique and should be understood in its own context.

FYI ~ British novelist and poet Robert Graves with von Ranke's great-nephew.

Leopold von Ranke quotes ~
• “Every generation is equidistant from God.”
• “You have reckoned that history ought to judge the past and to instruct the contemporary world as to the future. The present attempt does not yield to that high office. It will merely tell how it really was.”
• “He who overcomes himself is divine. Most see their ruin before their eyes; but they go on into it.”

The Making of a Counter Culture: Reflections on the Technocratic Society and Its Youthful Opposition
The Making of a Counter Culture: Reflections on the Technocratic Society and Its Youthful Opposition

Theodore Roszak
b. 11-15-1933; Chicago, Illinois
d. 7-5-2011; Berkeley, California

Historian and professor Theodore Roszak is best remembered for his 1968 The Making of a Counter Culture, which explored the European and North American counterculture of the 1960s and technocracy.

Technocracy, a word derived from the Greek tekhne = skill and kratos = power, describes a form of government in which engineers, scientists, health professionals and other technical experts, control decision making in their respective fields.

FYI - democracy: rule by the people; oligarchy: rule by a small number of people; plutocracy, rule by wealth; theocracy: rule by clergy; monarchy = rule by one / aristrocracy = rule by elites.

Theodore Roszak quotes ~
• “Technology has destroyed interrelations in the human community. ... We are living among dispirited and agonized teenagers who can't find any hope.”
• “Nature composes some of her lovliest poems for the microscope and the telescope.”
• “It may, after all, be the bad habit of creative talents to invest themselves in pathological extremes that yield remarkable insights but no durable way of life for those who cannot translate their psychic wounds into significant art or thought.”
• “It should be obvious that action without wisdom, without clear awareness of the world as it really is, can never improve anything.”

Bertrand Russell
b. 5-18-1872; Trellech, Monmouthshire, Wales
d. 2-7-1970; Wales

Social reformer and pacifist Bertrand Arthur William Russell was a philosopher, logician, mathematician, and historian. He was awarded the 1950 Nobel Prize in Literature “in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought”.

Bertrand Russell quotes ~
• “Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and the unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. These passions, like great winds, have blown me hither and thither . . . over a deep ocean of anguish, reaching to the very verge of despair.”
• “A stupid man's report of what a clever man says can never be accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand.”
• “Government can easily exist without laws, but law cannot exist without government.”
• “If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way.”
• “Science may set limits to knowledge, but should not set limits to imagination.”
