Few students are inclined to follow the extreme skepticism of Ettore Pais, who rejects as legendary all Roman history before 443 B.C., and believes that the two Tarquins were one person, who never existed.The Story of Civilization: Caesar and Christ, by Will Durant, p. 15
One thought on “Just Historians Doing What Historians Do”
A skeptic sees a plenitude of possibilities, and from that deduces that there is no single truth. A scholar sees potentials, and from that deduces the closest approximation to truth.
A direct witness disproves them both.
