Известный французский архитектор и знаток искусства Виолле-­ле-­Дюк в своем труде о средствах ведения войны в Средние века использовал не только знание принципов строительства, огромный опыт зодчего, но и результаты проведенных им исследований в области истории.

Who cares for Carlyle's reasons, or Schopenhauer's, or Spencer's? A philosophy is the expression of a man's intimate character, and all definitions of the Universe are but the deliberately adopted reactions of human characters upon it.­"
