Play

Picture: From the most paranoid conspiracy theorists to the most patriotic and authority-worshiping main-streamers, people need to understand that history is not a cartoon

Historian Kevin Cole joins me for a live discussion, recorded on August 16th. Kevin explains his waking up process, and then we examine the history of the study of history. We also look into some of Kevin's projects - an upcoming book about the trivium and a recent article about Carol Quigley - to provide examples.

Discussed:
-the creation of disciplines
-historiography (different lenses for viewing the past)
-historicity (accuracy and impact)
-the dangers of biographical history
-Organic Unity
-The Society of the Elect
-Neologisms
-The founding fathers and the Illuminati
-The Professor Who Knew Too Much
-who has been meddling in this academic discipline?
-the de-cartoon-ifying of history and conspiracy
