Bentley has observed that 'the term world history has never been a clear signifier with a stable referent', and that usage of the term overlaps with universal historycomparative historyglobal historybig historymacro historyand transnational historyamongst others.
Over the next decades scholarly publications, professional and academic organizations, and graduate programs in World History proliferated. World History has often displaced Western Civilization in the required curriculum of American high schools and universities, and is supported by new textbooks with a world history approach.
World History attempts to recognise and address two structures that have profoundly shaped professional history-writing: A tendency to use current nation-states to the set the boundaries and agendas of studies of the past. A deep legacy of Eurocentric assumptions found especially, but not only, in Western history-writing.
Thus World History tends to study networks, connections, and systems that cross traditional boundaries of historical study like linguistic, cultural, and national borders.
World History is often concerned to explore social dynamics that have led to large-scale changes in human society, such as industrialisation and the spread of capitalismand to analyse how large-scale changes like these have affected different parts of the world.
Like other branches of history-writing in the second half of the twentieth century, World History has a scope far beyond historians' traditional focus on politics, wars, and diplomacy, taking in a panoply of subjects like gender historysocial historycultural historyand environmental history.
Toynbeethis is an international association of scholars that publishes a journal, Comparative Civilization Review, and hosts an annual meeting in cities around the world.
However, early forms of world history were not truly global, and were limited to only the regions known by the historian. Sima Qian's model is based on the Mandate of Heaven.
Rulers rise when they united China, then are overthrown when a ruling dynasty became corrupt. The test of virtue in a new dynasty is success in being obeyed by China and neighboring barbarians. After years Sima Qian's model still dominates scholarship, although the dynastic cycle is no longer used for modern Chinese history.
However, his great rival Thucydides promptly discarded Herodotus's all-embracing approach to history, offering instead a more precise, sharply focused monograph, dealing not with vast empires over the centuries but with 27 years of war between Athens and Sparta. The Secret History is regarded as a piece of classic literature in both Mongolia and the rest of the world.
His descriptions also highlight the manner in which the Mongol Empire and its emphasis on trade resulted in an atmosphere of cultural and religious exchange and intellectual ferment, resulting in the transmission of a host of ideas from East to West and vice versa. One Muslim scholar, Ibn Khaldun broke with traditionalism and offered a model of historical change in Muqaddimah, an exposition of the methodology of scientific history.
Ibn Khaldun focused on the reasons for the rise and fall of civilization, arguing that the causes of change are to be sought in the economic and social structure of society.
His work was largely ignored in the Muslim world. Early modern[ edit ] During the Renaissance in Europe, history was written about states or nations.
The study of history changed during the Enlightenment and Romanticism. Voltaire described the history of certain ages that he considered important, rather than describing events in chronological order.
History became an independent discipline. It was not called philosophia historiae anymore, but merely history historia. Voltaire, in the 18th century, attempted to revolutionize the study of world history.
First, Voltaire concluded that the traditional study of history was flawed.
The Christian Church, one of the most powerful entities in his time, had presented a framework for studying history. Above all else, Voltaire regarded truth as the most essential part of recording world history.
Nationalism and religion only subtracted from objective truth, so Voltaire freed himself for their influence when he recorded history. He thought that men are historical entities and that human nature changes over time.
Each epoch should be seen as a whole in which all aspects of culture—art, religion, philosophy, politics, and economics—are interrelated a point developed later by Oswald Spengler.
Vico showed that myth, poetry, and art are entry points to discovering the true spirit of a culture. Vico outlined a conception of historical development in which great cultures, like Rome, undergo cycles of growth and decline.
His ideas were out of fashion during the Enlightenmentbut influenced the Romantic historians after Hi Linda~ am a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) from class #1 and the Master Class.
