Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

History: history is the set of past events captured and illustrated by people. The general limitation of processing and presentation resources is linked to the fact that relevance plays a central role in the representation. History also differs from the past - which encompasses the totality of past events – in that it is re-written over and over again by re-evaluating the relationships between events and their relevance. See also past, memory, future, society, progress.

Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.
