History – 9389

History enables us to understand our surroundings. It allows us to correlate past with present and anticipate the future course of events. It helps us understand people, society and cultures. It further develops an understanding of how societies change and came into existence. Moral understanding of events helps us to differentiate between ‘what happens/ed’ and ‘what ought to happen’. It gives us a sense of our own identities.
