Analytická historiografia versus národné dejiny. "Národ" ako sociálna reprezentácia = Analytical Historiography versus National History. "Nation" as a Social Representation, László Vörös, author ; Răzvan Adrian Marinescu, Viktoriya Kolp, editor

The objective of this book is twofold. Firstly, it seeks to answer the following questions: Why is it that most mainstream historiographies remain informed and determined by national/nationalist ideologies in some important aspects? Why do "national histories" seem to be so right and natural? Why is it that the substantial part of theorising about nationalism remains informed by objectivist concepts of the nation and what are the consequences of this? Secondly, considering the answers to the above questions, this book offers a possible alternative approach to the historical study of nationalism based on a re-evaluation of the epistemological foundations of traditional history, broadening its methodological corpus by incorporating analytical approaches used in the social sciences and by introducing the social psychological theory of social representations into the interpretations of historians ..
