The business of history is to represent the Law in the state it has been in, in past periods of its existence: the business of simple demonstration in the sense in which I will take leave to use the word, is to represent the Law in the state it is in for the time being. 56 It is important to note that Jeremy did not borrow the term "demonstration" from logicians and mathematicians, but from naturalists. Jeremy explained his use of the word "demonstration" in the footnote to this passage: 54George organised Whately's five kinds of definition on a table on pg 95 of G.
