I understand scientific principles and use them in my profession: Engineering.
However, I love history. In fact I have endeavoured to become quite knowledgeable in two areas: Rome in the first century BCE; and the Royal Navy in the Eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
However, I reject the notion that studying history is in any way scientific. It is a pleasure to me partly because it is not about science. The biased reports of historical events and people are all part of the rich tapestry of evidence from which to draw your own (subjective) opinions.
For me history is like classical music, visual arts, literature, language, and poetry. These are things to be enjoyed by a cultrured mind.
The best way to destroy that enjoyment is to formally study those subjects at university level and/or apply scientific principles to them.
