Explain Leopold von Ranké’s perspective of history?

Answer :

Leopold von Ranké published his perspective of history in the number of articles in his book called ‘The Theory and Practice of History’ and ‘The Secret of World History.’ He considers that it is important to collect the information from the original historical sources or documents. The related documents should be handled with great care. He justifies that this method will help to reach the historical truth and supported the critical method of the analysis of the historical research and disapproved with the imaginative ways to form the history. Thus, in the 19th century, his thoughts greatly influenced the historiography.
