The modern scholar as he approaches history is naturalistic. Hence he sifts endlessly through the data, economic data, political data, weather data, plagues, political events, military events, everything under the sun. The more voluminous the data the happier he is. Modern historiography thus loses itself in an endless search for causes; ever learning and never able to come to the truth.
