    me. It was the first time I had seen her cry in front of us, my mother was always brave and never let anyone see her be vulnerable. But I knew this time things were different.

Yet historians after von Ranke have been critiquing him mercilessly ever since, such as Paul Veyne with his book Writing History: Essays on Historiography (1984). Veyne criticizes von Ranke for…

    professor’s viewpoint, especially, they believe that this is not right and should not be a thing anymore.
