Abstract

The notion of truth is one of the main categories of the historical profession. Historical truth is for historians not only a philosophical but also a moral category. It is not necessarily the classical truth presupposing metaphysical realism. The expectations of historians could possibly better satisfy other conceptions of truth like the conception of non-referential truth proposed by Hilary Putnam. The notion of truth should be applied not only to singular sentences but also to whole narratives. This is indispensable insofar as historical narrative is composed not only of articulated but also of non-articulated layers which carry informative, persuasive (rhetorical), ideological and theoretical content.
