Why study history? In the first place, history offers a storehouse of information about how people and societies behave. The second reason is that the past causes the present, and so the future. History also provides a terrain for moral contemplation. History also helps provide identity, and this is unquestionably one of the reasons all modern nations encourage its teaching in some form.
A study of history is essential for good citizenship. History is useful for work. Its study helps create good businesspeople, professionals, and political leaders.
