Historians and moral responsibility

Over at Cliopatria Ralph E. Luker and Jonathan Dresner have begun a discussion based on my earlier posting of an article on the subject of the moral responsibility of historians. The occasion was a lecture at the University of Chicago by Robert Richards.

Check them out and feel free to comment on their observations, or mine for that matter.

My post is here.

Cliopatria's website is here. Scroll down for Luker's post.

Luker also links to a lecture by David McCullough that contains some pertinent observations. The McCullough link is here.
