The Presence of History in Humanistic Sciences
Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
The presence of history in the arts is (a) an ontic presence (delivering knowledge that humanistic facts are historical); (b) an epistemic presence (delivering knowledge that these facts derive research with historical factor); (c) a pragmatic presence (delivering knowledge that facts shown by historian may be used by those planning and performing operations in 'social technology'); (d) an educational presence (delivering knowledge that these facts are about limits for free shaping of one's life). Escape from history is senseless as regards research and shaping of inter-personal life. A humanist may and should perform his/her research activity as historian and anthropologist, i.e. make insights into the specific, different, and changing as well as into the universal and stable. A humanist becomes a historian and an anthropologist due to proper analysis and interpretation of culture as a space of 'challenges' and 'answers' - a space of social games of 'the ways of prises' and 'the ways of punishments' as well as choosing values and throwing away anti-values.
