Leopold van Ranke 1795–1886, German historian, is generally recognized as the father of the modern objective historical school. He applied and elaborated Barthold Niebuhr’s scientific method of historical investigation. Ranke’s aim was to reconstruct the unique periods of the past as they actually were and to avoid injecting the history of former times with the spirit of the present; this approach to historiography is known as historicism. --The Columbia Encyclopedia
