This work proposes a single structure to incorporate all aspects of history - events, evidence, interpretations, books and lectures, popular ideas and social effects - into one comprehensive whole. This study is grounded in the common-sense meaning of the word, "structure" It composes one paradigm encompassing the organization of history as a whole and the organization of each of its parts. Dr Stanford locates the problems of studying story, both philosophical and practical. He clarifies the issues and exemplifies the current thinking of both historians and philosophers.
