Basic Concepts Concerning History<o:p></o:p>

1.   History <o:p></o:p>

    The word history could be used in several different senses. In its Greek origins it meant inquiry, or knowledge acquired by investigation. But by a subtle transformation the term history came to be applied to the record of what had been learned by investigation; and in this sense it passed over into modern speech. Meantime, another ambiguity caused confusion in thought. The word history is used to denote not only the record of what has been learned by inquiry, but also the course of events themselves. Furthermore, history can also mean the period of time after writing was invented. Events of the past prior to written records are considered as prehistory.

1.      历史学<o:p></o:p>

历史学一词在不同的领域中有不同的理解,在希腊语的由来中它意味着调查,或者调查之后的知识。但是在一个微妙的翻译中,历史学这一术语被理解为对调查结果的记录;在这个意义上,它更符合现代的说法。同时,另一种含糊不清的解释造成了理解上的困惑。历史学一词不仅被用来指代询问过后的记录,也用来记录他们自己的事件。更深入地讲,历史学也意味着从写字被发明的时期。发生在很久之前的记录就被称为史前时期。
