Changing Nature of the Scope of History

    History was studied by ancient historians for the purpose of gaining knowledge. Herodotus, the father of history, presented the human works and achievements of the past in the form of a story.

    In the scientific age, history was viewed from a scientific point of view and the Bureau established the belief that ‘History is science, neither less nor more’.

    With the establishment of the primacy of religion in the Middle Ages, religious beliefs were also included in the field of history.

    In this way, along with the change in social values and social needs, the field of history also changes and develops.

    Historians believe that the only basis for the development of history is the social values and social needs of different eras. In other words, the nature of history always evolves according to social needs.

    The area of this subject is being developed further through research work.
