“There is, inescapably, an historical dimension in any truthtelling. . . . It is not that ‘history’ tells the truth (or disguises or determines the truth) as it is that we are ineluctably involved with history in any attempt to tell the truth.”
Caryl Johnston, quoted in Lukacs, Remembered Past, p. 17.
