    Historical Narrative: Towards a Coherent Structure.Jerzy Topolski - 1987 - History and Theory 26 (4):75-86.
    In attempting to establish a correspondence between the content of historical narrative and that of past facts, F. R. Ankersmit identifies a "mechanism" which enables one to arrive at a narrative representation of the past. He asserts that the mechanism cannot be called a "translation," since the correspondence is indirect. Narrative is, however, closer to the truth than he has stated. Historical narratives can be evaluated on their proximity to the truth by the degree of their coherence. Coherence can be (...)

    Levi-Strauss and Marx on History.Jerzy Topolski - 1973 - History and Theory 12 (2):192.
    Lévi-Strauss's proposed link between his theory of history and Marx's is misleading. Believing that social reality and human actions are determined by unconscious and universal structures of the mind, he discounts the historical process as a contributor to man's consciousness. The codes of the unconscious structures are a priori rules for decision making; possible options are determined by chance. History consists of accidental events determined by discontinuous choices. Unlike Lévi-Strauss, Marx based his theories on praxis informed by man's consciousness. Rational (...)

    "Source-Free Knowledge": On The Role of Cognitive Preconceptions in Historical Research.Jerzy Topolski - 1974 - Russian Studies in Philosophy 12 (4):52-63.
    No one denies that in his research the historian, whether consciously or not, guides himself by already acquired knowledge of reality past and present that has undergone certain interpretation. It is usually said that he possesses a certain "view of the world." a certain understanding of the historical process, a certain theory , i.e., conceptions from which he cannot detach himself in the course of his research. Some regard this situation as a kind of "inevitable evil" inherent primarily in the (...)

    Towards an Integrated Model of Historical Explanation.Jerzy Topolski - 1991 - History and Theory 30 (3):324-338.
    A procedure of historical explanation is proposed which integrates two approaches used by contemporary historians. The motivational model, focusing on the various kinds of motives encountered in historical narratives, and the deductive- nomological model, which focuses on the importance of external events, can be linked together to yield a better integrated explanatory system. The two approaches can be bridged by establishing even more general laws underlying ones already applied, or by searching for substantiations of causes and laws in the origin (...)

    The Role of Logic and Aesthetics in Constructing Narrative Wholes in Historiography.Jerzy Topolski - 1999 - History and Theory 38 (2):198–210.
    The construction of narrative wholes in historiography involves more than logic, but aesthetics as well. It is imagination as well as logic which generates the more or less concretized images constituting the background onto which the historian, "playing" with basic information, imposes some content and portrays some event by means of a narrative. These concretized images incorporate an aesthetic sense of order. Historical narratives also employ general terms which "bind together" the various elements of basic information which, when linked together, (...)
