The article examines the connections between historical narratives and historical deeds and events. It argues that historical accounts can be either original, reflective, or philosophic. It notes that most philosophers have presumed that a perfect world is the rational basis of history and human action and the ability to act rationally. It suggests that a universal, and moral refection that was disassociated from lived history can formulate a redeemed, universal coda to history. It cites the impact of historical events on one's ability to reason.
