The national historical science stood up to his full height , but has not yet started to move - expert


The process of self-understanding of history as part of the social sciences and humanities , and its integration into the global cultural and historical context gives reason to believe that the history of people of Kazakhstan was able to maintain its own individual person , despite the complexity and difficulties of the transition period. This was announced in an interview BNews.kz by the doctor of historical sciences, professor, academician of RAEN and MAIN Sattar Mazhitov .

According to him, in spite of the above, today "works of historians can be counted on the fingers, which are of high theoretical and methodological level ."

" Increasingly, we are dealing with compilative samples , notes or that event . They appear as often subjected to surface analysis of historical fact. It should try to apply to it or that the methods and tools of analysis , which operates a modern arsenal of social sciences and humanities , the so-called " study " assumes a very different picture , and is far from the historical truth , "- said S.Mazhitov .

In his opinion , the methods and means by which approves the national historical science , allowed it to stand up , but that does not mean that it is the beginning of the movement .

" Historians need to master the powerful tools of knowledge regarding achievements in the world of the humanities , and perhaps the natural sciences. For example, to explain the concept of acceleration of historical time and write papers related to her , a broad range of vision and scientific practice ", - concluded the professor.
