Epistemological natureof a historical source


Invariably, the actual problem of philosophy of history is that of a historical source, its
ontological foundations and epistemological status. Historical source does not exist as an
absolute reality; traces of the past, as in the material world and in mans spiritual life by
themselves are silent. Historical source arises as a result of the synthesis of traces of the past
and the historical thinking. In the end, it matters which confronts the historian remnants
of the past, their learning, and determine the epistemological potential historical source.
Historical sources as the basis for obtaining knowledge is practically inexhaustible, because
the growth of knowledge allows you to use more fully the known historical sources, forming
the basis of their new knowledge.
