Behind this is a conservative predisposition, more or less explicit among German historicists, to repudiate the French Revolution as a violent caesura in European thought, and to mark the rise of historically minded Romanticism, as evinced by Sir Walter Scott and (more complicatedly) by Goethe as being altogether more inspirational to the enterprise of historical understanding constituted by the new approach of historicism.
