The article discusses the historiography of science, focusing particularly on the twentieth century modernist response to the book "The great chain of being," by Arthur Lovejoy, which proposed the history of the idea of the series. The author considers subjects including history methodology, the development of the history of ideas, philosophies regarding intellectual history, and the schemata of evolution. He also considers the philosophy of history espoused by French intellectual Michel Foucault, the academic career of Lovejoy, and the influence of Romanticism and Nazism on intellectual theories of the twentieth century.
