Speaking of postmodernist historical theory. Relativist in nature, it was "a denial of the ... reality of the past apart from what the historian chooses to make of it, and thus of any objective truth about the past." This is from "Postmodernist History," a paper delivered at a conference on "Tradition and Creativity in Contemporary Culture" held by the Institute on Religion and Public Life.
