Abstract

In die artikel word die kennisleer van Heinrich Rickert bespreek. Rickert se oogmerk om geskiedenis as 'n wetenskap vry van positivisme te vestig, lei tot 'n uitbouing van die idees van Windelband en Lask. Daarom formuleer Rickert 'n teorie van begripsvorming wat die unieke kenmerke van historiese verskynsels beklemtoon. Vir Rickert is die hoofprobleem van historiese kennis die onderskeid tussen betekenisvolle en nie-betekenisvolle verskynsels. In 'n poging om hierdie probleem op te los, ontwerp Rickert "waardeverband" as maatstaf vir die kies van kultureel betekenisvolle onderwerpe uit die empiriese werklikheid. Rickert se aanspraak dat die objektiwiteit van geskiedenis afhanklik is van die onderskeid tussen waardeverband en waarde-oordele is egter onoortuigend.

This article deals with the epistemology of Heinrich Rickert. Rickert's aim, to establish history as a science free from positivism, led to an elaboration of the ideas of Windelband and Lask. Hence Rickert formulated a theory of concept formation emphasising the unique characteristics of historical phenomena. For Rickert the main problem of historical knowledge is the distinction between significant and insignificant phenomena. In his attempt to solve this problem, Rickert invented "value relevance" as criterion for selecting significant objects from empirical reality. However, Rickert's claim that the objectivity of history is dependent on the distinction between value relevance and value-judgements is not convincing.
