Why is it impossible to understand the present without knowledge of history?

It helps to trace the path of humanity in time – from the appearance on earth of our distant ancestors to the present day. Our today will also become history tomorrow.
Each generation uses in its life what was created by previous generations.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
