Studying the question begins with the first condition statement. Is history the  study of random events? A random event should be known as an event with equal  probabilities for or against. While we can grasp a coin flip or die roll as random, can we  say that history is random?  In its most pure form history is the recollection of occurrences events , specifically,  the occurrences  events  that involve people. The human element is the flaw in the  original condition question above  because  people are not random or ,  unpredictable, but  not without act with forethought and  cause. People, be they insane, sane, or heavily  medicated act in wholly  predictable patterns ways . Any psychologists  would claim they   can review historical events and justify the human response given enough information.  Alexander had a compulsion to conquest thinking of it as an acceptable way to get  appreciation from his father because he didn’t get hugged enough. Thus his quest to   conquer and unification  unify  of the better part of the world is not a random roll of the  dice but a calculated and desired result based on bree a ding and environment. Like the  toss of a coin, the  study of  the rotational and gravitational forces, or for people, the  event and environment, and the event is no longer random. From this logical process  we can better state that history is the study of past events instead of random events.
