M. A. BARG. Historical Awareness as a Historiographic Problem.
The author presents two understandings of the concept "historical awareness": a broad one, i. e., as a characterisation of the culture of the given epoch and a narrow, specialised one, i.e., as a sphere of transformation of the dominating world-view into an axiological system of the historian. In the first case the type of historism is analysed within a cultural context, while in the second-the historian discloses the degree to which the worldview situation influences the formation of the type of historical thinking.
