The Practical Past

by ,

Hayden White borrows the title for The Practical Past from philosopher Michael Oakeshott, who used the term to describe the accessible material and literary-artistic artifacts that individuals and institutions draw on for guidance in quotidian affairs. The Practical Past , then, forms both a summa of White's work to be drawn upon and a new direction in his thinking about the writing of history.
