Volume 1 (1979)
Thomas Bender, editor
The bulk of this issue is devoted to a series of essays by intellectual historians and by historians of specialized disciplines. Professor Thomas L. Haskell provided a focus for discussion with a paper that raises the issue of the relationship of these enterprises. Further reflections on this issue come from several scholars, some intellectual historians, some historians of disciplines: Bruce Kuklick, George Stocking, Quentin Skinner, G. Edward White, and Sally Gregory Kohlstedt.
Two additional essays in this issue seek to open up new ways of exploring thought and culture. The first, by William R. Taylor, explores what is involved in writing the "history of perception"; while the other, by David Hall, talks about the history of mentalite in an American context.
