Burke and others; it tries to show as its analyzes well this based and represents the philosophical thought in vigor. For having one ' ' vocation filosfica' ' , as he himself relates itself, Jose Carlos Kings, defends in surplus the return of the history-knowledge, that was used widely in century XVIII, and that it has as goal the understanding of the world by means of the study of the Reason, using the philosophy as base of the reflections. But as Tzvetan Todorov says: ' ' The acquisition of the knowledge alone makes to approach to the truth when it is about the knowledge of what it is loved and in none another one caso' ' (L? enracinement, P. 319). Franklin Fellow addresses the importance of the matter here. That is, if it cannot have a full understanding of something if we will not be living this something, therefore, without the emotion, the feeling of the vivenciao, of the personal experience, everything would be degnerated in scholastic, and thus it would bring satisfaction only to the bureaucratic institutions, that adore the data quantitative.
A history made in philosophical bases, could become an empirical history quickly, what widely was criticized by Kings, when used for history-science. When weaveeing hard you criticize to the scientific methods where history-science if alicerou, Kings, left to analyze as these methods had been useful in if creating one ' ' structure lgica' ' , based, to become history. It is clearly that, the thoughts of historical radicalistas, that had introduced the scientific thought and had suppressed the philosophy of history, had committed an error of balance lack. However, Kings, fall in a similar error when defending the introduction of the philosophy in history and the total suppression of the scientific methods. She is necessary to have a balance, to use optimum of the two worlds would be most sensible, is necessary to prevent the historical radicalism. I consider the idea of very good the resenhado text for the use in the facultieses, I enter the beginning ones in history graduation. It is not secret that history passed for some changes and that currently to a indefinio how much to the moment where if it lives and how much the one that way to follow.
However, the form as Kings presents this moment of the one realistic vision of three centuries of historiogrficos conflicts. The beginning ones of graduation in history will be able to thus have refined vision of uncurling description. The professor Jose Carlos Kings is one of the known historians more in Brazil.
