As for modern historians accept historical analysis as faundamental base. Historical analysis analyses the elements of government, nation or civilization which are the subject of the events by breaking them into peaces, although it has not a possibility to take them in a laboratory as in the case of natural sciences. When doing this, it does not disregard the relation between the part and the whole, treats the event in the dimension of a whole. As historical analysis has been performed, the problems due to the historian, historical event, the language in which the event has been reported, or the political and ideological structure of the event must be taken into account.
