Abstract:   (10054 Views)
Studding history and the results which are subsequently inferred from it are based on the paradigms which make the basis of historiography. The quiddity of history and the path which it passed to be considered as a science is as complicated as the humans’ life. The word “history” has two main meaning: first, it means what has happened in the past, and second, the knowledge about that happening which is gained through the written texts. Most of the time, the second meaning is taken into account as the meaning of history. In this path, art history and historiography of art are of extraordinary importance and hence the artistic works are considered as the beginnings of humans’ spiritual and cultural life. This research has tried to answer to the question that what the history and its path are by considering the traditional and modern approaches of historiography. In conclusion, with looking at art history as a chosen case, history isn’t just the event which has happened in the past, but is the chosen subject which its importance was considered by the historian and the way that he writes it down. Accordingly, the cultural, philosophical, social and even political development in each era has the vital effect on the method of historiography of each period of time. In any case, historian shows the reflection of his thought in his writing, so obviously his manuscript couldn’t be apart from his mentality and personal choice which is the dilemma both in traditional and modern historiography.
