Nota sobre “Los lenguajes de la historia”
The article starts from previous contributions by the author about “Languages of History” (Dianoia, 1970), in which he distinguished three types of statements used by historians. In this context, he analyzes the various relationships between these three following languages (I, 11 and III): the positivist, the hermeneutic, and the recursive ones. After analyzing the two first ways in their strong and weak versions, the author decides in favour of the third one, in its weak or informal version.
