War and Peace


by Leo Tolstoy

War and Peace Epilogue, Part 2, Chapter 12 Summary

  • Right now (Tolstoy’s now) history is being resistant to the need to reform and become more science-based. It’s like all the people who resisted the idea that the earth is round or that there are statistical and mathematical ways to compute how the world works.
  • It’s the way progress works, history, so deal with it.
  • The End.
  • Phew. You've made it.
