Read ì That Noble Dream The 'Objectivity uestion' and the American Historical Profession Ideas in Context å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free CenturyDrawing on the unpublished correspondence as well as the published writings of hundreds of American historians from J Franklin Jameson and Charles Beard to Arthur Schlesinger Jr and Eugene Genovese That Nobel Dream is a richly textured account of what American historians have thought they were doing o. Read this for grad class on theory much like most of the other reviewers on here I wholeheartedly agree with most of the previous reviewers that no one in their right mind read not in a history grad program should have any inclination or desire to pick this up Now I personally detest theory my soul dies a little every time I go to my class dedicated to it but I enjoyed this book This may be the first theory centric book that I did not daydream about torching While I struggle to see how much of the theory we study influences or fits into my own work Novick s in depth discussion of the objectivity uestion is highly relevant I think to all historians regardless of specialization or focus Maybe particularly because we insist on having specialization and focus It s a history of historians thinking about history and that s just so rarely exciting but Novick does a good job of examining the idea of objectivity from all angles something that historians really do need to think about A good short companion piece to this is Thomas Haskill s wonderful review After reading Novick Haskill puts into words exactly what about Novick s argument makes you uncomfortable but then shows why that s kind of okay

A fascinating exposition of the rise and fall of objectivism as the governing norm of historical practice divided into four movements the establishment of the ideal with historical professionalization 1880 1915 the challenge from early relativism in the Progressive era 1915 1940 the attempted revision in postwar consensus history 1940 1960 and the final collapse during the counterculture movement and postmodern turn 1960 1988 Insisting that his aim is not to defend a thesis but simply to make fellow historians self conscious about their enterprise Novick writing in 1988 offers no prospects for the future of the discipline in fact such a thing has ceased to exist though given the premise this neutral posture seems at best curious and at worst inconsistent or at least a missed opportunity for what would surely be some insightful constructive suggestions
