Abstract: 

The paper presents an investigation into the possibility conditions for the objectivity of historical knowledge as the possibility of the science of history in general. With due consideration of the key points of the Kantian "revolution in the way of thinking" and the subsequent methodological theories the author criticizes traditional idea of objectivity as object-likeness, and substantiates a possibility of the historical knowledge objectivity as inter-subjectivity and validity.
