“Most mens learning is nothing but History duely taken upp. If I quote Tho : Aquinas for some Tenet, & believe it, because the school-men say soe, that’s but History :  few men make themselves masters of the things they write or speake.”

John Selden, Table-Talk

 

John Selden is generally considered England’s first legal historian. He questioned all of his contemporaries and their definition of ‘history.’ He spent time trying to discover history by researching the past, more so than that of his colleagues. He claimed, as seen in the quote above, that men of knowledge did not learn from the past, nor did they seek to discover the past. Selden sought to change this, particularly in Table-Talk where he provides advice and understanding on various topics such as money management, being honest, when to plan crops, plus other spiritual guides.
