Arthur M. Schlesinger

Dr. Mohler has a brief examination of the life and work of Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., one of the most influential historians of the past century, who died yesterday, February 28, 2007, in New York.

See Dr. Mohler’s post here: Al Mohler.

It was Schlesinger who once argued that “history is to the nation rather as memory is the individual.” A right-on comment if there ever was one! Mohler rightly comments, “we may argue with Schlesinger’s interpretations of that memory,” but “we do well to take his contribution seriously.”
