The “Dialogue” necessary for the restoration of the past

Once defined as “an unending dialogue between the past and the present” (E. H. Carr), history is a very straightforward discipline; and the scholar who looks into the past — the historian — must first and foremost keep a moderate stance. At the same time, incessant testing and verification can yield solid conclusions — if possible, I would like you to appreciate how rich and wonderful they can be.
