Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.                                                                                            —George Santayana

I have learned, that History help us to understand change and how the society we live in came to be. For me this quotation represents how I see the history. Through it, it allows us to think critically about our present situations to take decisions for our future. understanding history helps us avoid repeating the mistakes over and over again. That’s why for history is necessary to avoid repeating past mistakes, and that’s one reason of why do we learn history. While those who fail to learn from their mistakes of their predecessors are destinated to repeat them. Those who do not know history’s mistakes are doomed to repeat it.

  1. Daniela, can you connect Santayana’s claim with G. B. Shaw’s remark that “We learn from history that we learn nothing from history”?

  2. I think that you are right and history does help us understand how society works, because history is mostly based on human beings behaviour and events that might have happened at certain times. I think that you could have put a couple of examples of this, but i think you did a good job!
