Abstract: 

The author deals with the problem of different opinions regarding the nature of history. He presents an objection to the typology that distinguishes between ontological, epistemological, and linguistic paradigmes. From his understanding of the nature history, and Brian Fay`s typology, he distinguishes two poles: positons of constructivism and reconstructivism. In dealing with the problem of the nature of history, he considers five constitutive factors that where formulated by Jörn Rüsen. In the view of the autor of this article unclear impact of these factors is source of different opinions regarding the nature of history. Accoroding to his opinion the most relevant impact to construction of narrative history has theoretico-ideological framework.
