Lecture 25 - Concluding Discussion and Advice on Examination
In this final lecture, Professor Wrightson reviews the major themes of the class through a reflection on the nature of the historical process. He explains how the developments traced in the course illustrate the complex and ambiguous nature of historical change and emphasizes the importance of studying history as a means of "understanding ourselves in time" through the disciplined recreation of the past in the present. He concludes by offering his thanks to the teaching fellows.
