The Objectivity of Historical Knowledge: How We Can Know the Past
2018 1-4955-0697-5
In order to secure the possibility of objective history, this book argues against all kinds of historical relativism. All such theories exist substantially on the basis of relativist epistemology. Relativist epistemology comprises such diverse theories as deconstruction, conceptual relativism, paradigm theory, post-modernism, traditional historicism, sociological relativism, pragmatism, and cultural relativism. It proves that the diversity of historical viewpoints are compatible with historical objectivity.
