Abstract: 

In the History of historical science, efforts were made to connect the past with the future in one and the same "sense construct", like it is the case in Christian historiography.

Christian historiography has its own forward-looking statements which are proven in the biblical story,  because every future is based  on a "historical way".

This logic was also followed by K. Marx and N. Fedorov, whose models of future are principally based on historical arguments.

In the course of human history,the two philosophers discovered a kind of "intrigue", which reason is due to the humans past and its solution in human future. In the concepts of both philosophers, intrigue  has caused "alienation" of man from his own nature. It also gives meaning and purpose to human history. The purpose of human history exists for both – K. Marx and N. Fedorov- in human emancipation.
