The Historical Sciences: A Bibliographic Introduction

Version of March 1993

This bibliography was compiled by Robert J. O’Hara (rjohara@post.harvard.edu) for the Darwin-L discussion group, and the master copy is maintained in the Files section of the Darwin-L Archives (rjohara.net/darwin). It is a brief listing of a few works that can serve as introductions to the special character of the historical sciences of evolution, geology, and philology. It is not meant to be comprehensive, and it has not been compiled with any special rationale in mind. It may be freely distributed in print or electronically as long as the references and this header remain intact. Additional bibliographies on the history of systematics, on trees of history, on narrative in the historical sciences, and on the works of Stephen Toulmin are also available in the Darwin-L Archives.
