  1. “What can this knowledge give me?” What do you need?

    If you don't know what you need, then studying history is just the way to find out. One of the most effective means. A broad picture of how people wanted something, achieved something, and what came out of it at different times for them, for those who were around them, and for those who replaced them.

  2. A nation that does not know or has forgotten its past has no future

    As already mentioned in the comments, general erudition. Plus, to understand why a picture was drawn, a symphony was written, and sometimes how something was invented, you need to know the history as the background of the creator's life. For example, Beethoven wanted to dedicate Symphony No. 3 to Napoleon, but later became disillusioned with him. If you want to know why and agree or disagree with Beethoven, study history.

    If you want to understand politics, you also need to know history – how we came to live like this. If you want to understand the difficult relations between Ukraine and Russia, you need to study history. If you know the history, it will be harder to confuse you, because you will probably remember the historical equivalent of a political decision.

    Well, the Story is quite an interesting thing for me – the rise of powers and the fall, a lot of interesting personalities. You can spend a lot of time watching all sorts of documentaries, as well as thinking “What if”

  3. You need to learn history first of all in order to pass the Unified State Exam and then go to university. Well, also for general development, and creating an image of an erudite person, if you need it for some reason. Usually, this is necessary for humanitarians. Not much else for anything.

    History, strictly speaking, is not a science, but an academic discipline (like most humanities). To be quite frank, this is a fairy tale, where a penny of facts goes to a ruble of historians ' speculation about this. Which are also passed off as facts in the primers. Which, of course, is pure manipulation and social technology.

    The significance of history lies in the fact that human society is based on such fairy tales. These are the staples. So in tsarist Russia, the staples were, in short: Orthodoxy, autocracy, nationality. The revolutionaries undermined the people's faith in these bonds, and you know what happened next.

    So, although this is a fairy tale, it's not a joke at all.

  4. People study history in order to understand the moods of past years and centuries,analyze the issues that people of that time were concerned about,as well as their mistakes, so as not to repeat them.

  5. Knowing history gives you wisdom.

    When a person knows what they did yesterday in certain situations , they will not step on this rake twice.

    Everything had happened to someone before.

  6. I love the story so much, but unfortunately-this will not give you anything, except the opportunity to have a + / – meaningful conversation.�

    You should be objective. Knowing history really won't give you any advantages or make your life easier, and knowing history won't even affect your daily life, professional qualities, or personal life.�

    There are claims that it is necessary to know history and that a nation that has forgotten its history has no future… But alas-this is only for a red word.�

    If you are interested in history, this is good, any hobbies make life richer. But you might just as well enjoy anime, collect knives, and be crazy about off-road racing. Just hobbies, but an interest in them is what makes them meaningful.�

    What could history as a science be useful for? Well, not for combat – here you need to learn tactical techniques and develop strategic thinking. For sports? No, there's no way. In the jurisdiction? So, too, no way…�

    Probably there is only one serious activity that requires knowledge of history – this is the profession of a writer. Here, history is your loyal ally, full of inspiring events and interesting plots that you can transfer to your fictional worlds. Only here will it have a qualitative impact and reveal your talents.

  7. There is no point in learning history….there are only bikes there….and fairy tales…Knowledge didn't even pass by. History teaches only one thing-people do not want to learn anything stubbornly
