The German Historicist Tradition

Chapter 6 is an investigation into the philosophy and intellectual roots of Leopold Ranke (1795–1886), who is one of the most symbolic figures of German historicism. Ranke's intellectual roots are found to lie deep in the romantic movement. Individual sections are devoted to Ranke's theory of historical explanation, his controversial views about historical objectivity and his dispute with Hegel. A final section treats Ranke's so‐called Airrationalism.

Keywords:   Leopold Ranke, historical objectivity, romantic epistemology, irrationalism, ideas in history, Hegel
