Description/Abstract

Jeremy Jackson, through research at Syracuse University Special Collections and other sources, expounds upon the contributions of Leopold Von Ranke to the field of history. Jackson argues Von Ranke was not the founder of the historicist approach, rather Von Ranke favored a balanced approach toward historical fact that most likely came from his background in classical philology.
