Entrepreneurs Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler write in Bold: How To Go Big, Achieve Success, and Impact the World (2015) that we need to master four fundamental skills to be successful. These are “looking, reading, writing, and integrating knowledge” (p.54). There is no better place to learn these crucial ways of communicating and sharing information than through the study of History. Join us!
The study of the past is a conversation among historians. Our understanding of History is dynamic and our interpretations are constantly being challenged and changed. The past is very much alive, which is why we continue to enjoy reading, researching, discussing, and writing about it. Join the conversation today.
