comment Are the following 5 tenets of historical record examination considered complete today?
"No." These dicta are out of date and overly simplify the problem of reading primary sources. There's nothing about texts in context or the partiality of the documentary record. There's no bias analysis. The depiction of the social totality as a chain of finite causes is extraordinarily unusual for the contemporary era.
