The academy remembers Fischer's Fallacies

There was a funny reference on HNN to a 1970 book we've been talking about here for the last week:

...historians will treat Hoffer's book much like our mentors treated David Hackett Fischer's Historians' Fallacies: Toward a Logic of Historical Thought. We will glance at the packaging, take it to our offices, close the door behind us, and check to see if our names appear in the index.

We'll return to reductive fallacies and ACW mythmaking tomorrow.
