Fernand Braudel

French historian.
All history must be mobilized if one would understand the present.More Fernand Braudel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Events are the ephemera of history; they pass across its stage like fireflies, hardly glimpsed before they settle back into darkness and as often as not into oblivion. Every event, however brief, has to be sure a contribution to make, lights up some dark corner or even some wide vista of history. Nor is it only political history which benefits most, for every historical landscape - political, economic, social, even geographical - is illumined by the intermittent flare of the event.More Fernand Braudel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everything must be recaptured and relocated in the general framework of history, so that despite the difficulties, the fundamental paradoxes and contradictions, we may respect the unity of history which is also the unity of life.More Fernand Braudel quotes [10/20/2011 09:10:30]
The companies only developed if the state did not intervene in the French fashion. If on the contrary a certain degree of economic freedom was the rule, capitalism moved in firmly and adapted itself to all administrative quirks and difficultiesMore Fernand Braudel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There were two, three or four French Revolutions. Like a multi-stage rocket today, the Revolution involved several successive explosions and propellant thrusts.More Fernand Braudel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
