How did herndo so? Reflections on History is his own answer. Rrst published in English in 1943rn(under the title Force and Freedom), Reflections . . . is a guide to both the study andrnthe comprehension of historical processes. In lucid chapters such as “The Crises ofrnHistory,” “The Great Men of History,” and “On Fortune and Misfortune in History,”rnBurckhardt makes vivid the nature and reciprocal interactions of culture, religion, andrnthe state. Many readers will recognize Burckhardt—a Swiss historian of art andrnculture—as the author also of the equally famous The Ciuilization of the Renaissancernin Italy.rn554 pages.
