In a challenge to contemporary historians and cultural critics, this book proposes that the "autonomy" and "necessity" of history, and the concepts of "historicity" and "historicality," are academic myths which block critical access to the reality of the present. For Professor Cohen, narrative history promotes a false comparability of past and present, which renders the present unknowable.
