Basic Concepts Concerning History
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.
