    Isn't history the study of the past events and their causes and implications which helped form our society as we know it? As for its purpose, it's to let us learn from our mistakes and see that everything has a good side and a bad side to it. Also, because it means teachers can get money for a relatively straight forward subject.

    Too cynical and post-modern a sentiment. If it were not possible to separate truth from falsehood, history would be pointless.

    Do you think that history and fiction are the same thing? To some extent, history has been interpreted and altered so much that it is no longer true therefore it is fiction.
