RAGA ROSALENY, Vicente. History and philosophy: On the contingent or necessary role of history to philosophy. Rev. filos. [online]. 2015, vol.71, pp.113-125. ISSN 0718-4360.

Is it History necessary to Philosophy? In times of specialization,this would seem an obvious question and the response, almost unnecessary. However, the truth is that today we are witnessing a debate and a fragmentation of the philosophical field precisely around the question of the necessary or contingent character of History to Philosophy. Therefore, taking models of relationship with history both from the fields of Art and Science, in this article we will try to elucidate what role can meet the History in the philosophical field. Against advocates of History as an essential element of Philosophy, but also distancing us from who reserve a secondary place to History in our discipline, we would defend a third way.

Keywords : philosophy; history; history of philosophy; realism; relativism.
