Philosophy of History: Challenges to Truth

Busharat Elahi Jamil
Abstract— Philosophy of History is to expedite and evaluate the intellect originated by the sounded historical resources. Philosophical 'Doctrines' and 'Scholarships' by the influential philosophers, thinkers and theorists immensely examined and determined the historical facts. Various historical discourses, methodologies and experiments decorated the historiography to provide new approaches and philosophical observations. Historical data, primary and secondary resources and scientific approaches are to measure the validity of historical means. Historiography endorses and accepts the different methods of philosophy of history. But the inquiry of a historian gives the historical facts a new philosophical approach and understandable thinking to the readers. Actually philosophy of history is a science to measure the historical resources. It is to combine the binary approaches of historical philosophers and certain historians to define the results and applications of the past “which still living in the present”. Philosophy of History bent the historical truth to visualize the past in the present. Philosophical expressions provided the actual strength to historical data to compel the false historical approaches. Philosophical approaches more authenticate the factual resources and focus on the temporal views of available data.
