ABSTRACT
Information on the term "historicism" is presented. It refers to different and incompatible theories. The theory has two meanings. First, that historical events must be seen in their uniqueness and can only be understood against the background of their context. According to the second postulate, historicism is the view that history is governed by inexorable laws, which the historian tries to predict.
