Chapter Summary

Rhetoric and history have been connected ever since they became objects of scientific inquiry. Etymology of the terms confirms this. G. Droysen's study of the relationship laid the foundation for the metascience "Historia". D. Hart, A. Toynbee, R. G. Collingwood, R. Barthes, M. Foucault, D. Hexter, H. White, V. Mutafchieva, et al. have worked in the same vein. The debate about the relation between history and rhetoric is associated with the problem of historical truth and the role of probability. Related questions concern narrative, the "rhetorical-historical situation", gender studies, issues of historical proof, the image of the historian-narrator, the rules of historical rhetoric, the relation of the study of documents with invention, and historical description (the ordering and writing of history).

Keywords: rhetoric; history; Historia; probability; gender studies
