I saw a text tonight from a source, Lynn White, Medieval Technology and Social change. lonjdon: oxford universirt press, 1962.
This is one paragraphy from a charpter and this is orginal text.
" If historians are to attempt to write the history of mankind, and not simply the history of mankind as it was viewed by the small and specialized segments of our race which have had the habit of scribbling, they must take a fresh view of the records, ask new questions of them, and use all the resecources of archaeology, iconography, and etymoloy to find answers when no ansers can be discovered in contemporary writtings."
This is my paraphising.
" L. W. explains that historian write history by creating new views, raising new questions and turn eveything unfolded to approach recently unsolveable question. History is therefore not simply written."
I would like anyone give me comments, and so i will write better paraphraing.
when paraphrasing a text, i always find that i do not think of any vocabuary, do not know what subject and so on. it seems like my head is full of lots of ideas and it does not know what to go first. What should i do?
