Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the time-This book contains a historical context, where past events or the study and narration of these events are examined. The historical context refers to the circumstances and incidents surrounding an event. This context is formed by everything that, in some way, influences the event when it happens. A fact is always tied to its time: that is, to its time. Therefore, when analyzing events that took place tens, hundreds or thousands of years ago, it is essential to know the historical context to understand them. Otherwise, we would be analyzing and judging what happened in a totally different era with a current perspective.James Boswell, ninth Laird Auchinleck (Edinburgh, October 29, 1740 - London, May 19, 1795) was a Scottish writer, lawyer, and aristocrat, known for his biography The Life of Samuel Johnson (1791, The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D.), English doctor, intellectual and man of letters from the 18th century (1709-1784).Son of Lord Auchinleck (read Lord Affleck), judge of the Supreme Court of Scotland, he studied law first at the universities of Edinburgh (1753-1758) and Glasgow (1758-1762), where he was a student of Adam Smith.
