Bury’s – Science vs. literature

Below is a link to J.B. Bury’s (short-166pgs) book called the Idea of Progress where he slides through history and other forms of historiography shedding his parti pris on the majority of major players in the literary field. He also proses a question of whether history is a science or literary based discipline. I know we have discussed this at the beginning of the class but tonight I will be presenting on Bury and would like to hear your opinion on whether you agree or disagree with Bury. Also don’t be afraid to save me from my public speaking pains.
