If looking back represents a reluctance to leave the known for the unknown, if it expresses a fear of present prospects, if it is a temptation to escape the here-and-now reality and thus becomes a deterrent to looking ahead with courage, it is to be deplored. If, however, it is a way of gaining perspective, a means by which we may recognize and thus avoid earlier errors of judgment and action, or if, in reverse, it is a means by which to identify and preserve what is still to be developed further, if, in short, we look to the past as way of seeing more clearly and penetratingly its meanings and uses for our immediate present and near-future, then it may serve as well.
