Why study history [or art]? Unlike physics or economics, history is not a means for making accurate predictions. We study history not to know the future, but to widen our horizons. To understand that our present situation is neither natural nor inevitable. And that we consequently have many more possibilities before us than we imagine. Yuval Noah Harari
