Summary/Abstract: The aim of this paper is to review various occurrences in the analytical thinking on history. By revisiting the whole tradition of inquiry in the field of one of the most controversial academic disciplines within the context of social sciences, one can notice heterogeneous directions in approaching the subject matter of historiography. Regardless of whether it is theoretical or methodological, this particular kind of research unveils epistemological ends; by developing a specific conceptual framework in order to explain and clarify the major issues of history, analytical philosophy provides provocative and relevant outlooks on the contemporary thought regarding the epistemology of social sciences in general.
