Traditionally, History and Philosophy has been in the center of Human science. It has offered the leaders the principle for the national or social guidance. And it has been the spring of information and intelligent for the well educated men. At the last, it provided the fundamental of ideologies; nationalism, socialism(communism) etc.
But Since having finished the first and second world war, according to the development of industrial society, the diversification of the subject of study, and the American pragmatism becoming powerful, history has to meet the fate to withdrawal in the struggle for jobs.
Nevertheless, we cannot throw up the history. Because if all of the historical records were disappeared on the earth, all of process of human lives also would be drowned into the world of the lapse of memory. Here, we have to research the way to go on studying the new history according to new consciousness of realistic problem.
In the future, what and how will the historian do? At the first of all, most of historians have to do a self-reflection and a self-reformation. They must break from the convention; to make an attachment to special field of study and to be satisfied with a study according to his own preference. And They have to try to get close to mass of people. In behalf of this, first of all students of history have to make a foundation of knowledge about general history including various information of multifarious fields. Upon this basement, we must research the problems in the interest on present life and investigate the way of resolve the problems.
Second, Historians have to study the way how to use the history in the real life. For example, historians have to announce the role of historic knowledge for making a good democratic society and educating a democratic civil.
Third, historians have to search the way how to make a relationship with the history and another school subject. I guess that we, historians are able to connect with the history to diverse school department of subject. Politics, economics, sociology, religion, management etc.
