ISBN-13: 978-0801490590. In only a few pages of cogent and witty example and analysis, Becker amply demonstrated that no historian, however learned, well equipped, and painstaking, can ever reconstruct the past as it actually happened.

CARL LOTUS BECKER was born in Blackhawk County, Iowa, September 7, 1873. In reply to your letter of inquiry, I wish to say first of all that personally I have no grievance of any kind against the university or any one connected with it. He was graduated in 1896 from the University of Wisconsin and continued there his study of American history under the direction of Frederick Jackson Turner. His doctorate was conferred in 1907.

Carl L. Snyder. First published in 1958, Detachment and the Writing of History collects essays and letters by Carl L. Becker in which the noted historian outlines his views on the study of history, the craft of the historian, the art of teaching, and the historical evolution of the idea of democracy. Together, these invaluable writings demonstrate Becker's conviction of the moral seriousness of the historian's calling and of the importance of history as a factor, at once intellectual and artistically imaginative, in the life of society.

Cornell has recognized h Carl Lotus Becker was an American historian. He is best known for The Heavenly City of the Eighteenth-Century Philosophers (1932), four lectures on The Enlightenment delivered at Yale University. His assertion that philosophies, in the "Age of Reason," relied far more upon Christian assumptions than they cared to admit, has been influential, but has also been much attacked, Cornell has recognized his work as an educator by naming one of its five new residential colleges the Carl Becker House.
