Term of the day

historicity

The historical bias of each author, each society, each academic discipline. There is no narrative that describes history apart from the situatedness of the story-teller. "Thus, behind the history of the positivities , there appears another, more radical history, that of man hmself - a history that now concerns man's very being since he now realizes that he not only 'haas history' all around him, but is himself, in his own historicity, that by means of which a history of human life, a history of economics, and a history of languages are given their form." (The Order of Things, p.370)
