THE THEORY OF « EVENTALISM »
A NEW SCIENCE OF HISTORY BY EVENTS AND
A TOOL FOR STATESMEN
2- THE BIRTH OF EVENTALISM
Eventalism was born of a desire to verify
this law of renewal of Nation’s Histories. In the research
project, the law was set out as a hypothesis to be validated.
Next, the subject of the experiment was chosen : the USA during
the period of its foundation and the growth of the American
continent ( until the end of the XIXth century ).
Finally it was necessary to determine
which past Nation the USA was to have renewed. A potential answer
had been suggested by the philosophers of the last century,
such Alexis de Tocqueville : ROME. The History of ROME, during
its foundation and expansion within Italy ( until the beginning
of the IIIth century BC ) can be compared event by event with
those of the USA.
Before beginning this comparison, a
methodology was defined. This included strict rules to observe
and not forcibly correlate any event in Roman History with any
event in American History. It also imposed a « blind »
numerical technique so that the analogous research would not
be influenced by « intuitive » judgements.
The development of this study is outlined
in «The Nocam Book. The theory of Eventalism : ROME
and the USA » (Book II).
