Historians were in any case tending toward smaller-scale case-studies, away from the sweeping historical panoramas that had previously been demanded for pedagogical purposes.

Of course, disciplinary prejudices are necessary, since the phenomena under scrutiny are simply too hoary to make sense of without them. The rules and methods of the discipline allow the scholar to filter out the subject of their interest from everything else. Disciplines differ because they focus on different aspects of phenomena—they use different biases. By the same token, though, scholars do not often scrutinize the foundational assumptions of their work. This makes it difficult to adjust methods and aims once a discipline has matured and foundational questions have been settled.
