In the study attention is given to historiography as a means of determining the intellectual trends in a given period. Along with that the principle of stylistics is outlined as a means of expressing style and style trends that give the discipline of history and its practitioners a very specific identity. There is a suggestion that within the paradigm of a framework of production it is possible to determine certain trends. Science, the spirit of the times and the self can be considered as key components in determining the way in which historical writing is conducted. From that comes the unique way in which historians contemporise the past.
