Historia historiografii jako historia idei

History of Historiography as History of Ideas

This paper attempts to examine the reciprocal relationship between history of historiography, and history of ideas. The author’s purpose is to prove that within each domain in the scope of interest of history of historiography (infrastructure of historical science, theoretical and methodological assumptions, the vision of history) it forms a dialogue with the history of ideas, designed as a separate discipline by Arthur Lovejoy, as well as the ones which expand it and are included in broadly understood intellectual history. This primarily happens because both disciplines are deeply rooted in culture, which, however banal it may appear, has a historical dimension. The relationships mentioned are reflected in the Polish post-war history of historiography, in particular achievements of Marian H. Serejski as well as his students and colleagues.
