Abstract: 

The author discusses the problem of epistemology of historical knowledge and argues against neo-kantianism in the philosophy of history. He distinguishes two forms of unitarization of scientific knowledge — theory construction and the principle of holism and, hence, two forms of the theoretical consideration of history. The author insists that the Marxist approach seems to be the most relevant from this point of view. Thus, he defends the thesis that idealistic concepts are much more vulnerable in comparison to materialistic approaches.
