Human beings have a historical existence. When contemporary humans look at their history, they are actually remembering their own historical awareness. Based on historical awareness, contemporary humans are able to conceive all of the past society within themselves. Our historical awareness gives horizons of history to us in Social Science. These horizons of history will relate us to our society. Each society, family and human has its own social perspective. The social perspective changes during each historical epoch, but it is always related to its past and history. In our own social perspective, we can see different theories, culture, race, language, skin, etc. But, we perceive inside ourselves one thing that it integrates us together. It can give meaning to society and we will get unity in society. Our society will only get meaning by history. We cannot have meaning for our society without history. History has direct relation to social science.
Question: How does one find meaning in history in social science according to Critical Theory? Problem Statement: This paper examines which concept we can interpret about our society by history. Moreover, this paper will examine lessons learnt from the experiences from Critical Theory and propose recommendation for contemporary social science.
