Article type
Annotation In article is considered as the historical discourse changes upon transition from a traditional historical narrative to a visual narrative. The impossibility of application of methodology of a verification to historic facts forces researchers to address problems of the analysis of the whole historical texts. In this case, the special type of logical value is attributed to the text or a narrative: it can be true or false only entirely. This feature allows us to speak about the special informative procedure which coordinates with the trust caused by a narrator or a narrative in the reader or the listener. Crisis of historical science in the twentieth century leads to two fundamental shifts: to loss of belief in objectivity of historians and disappearance of a historical event. These shifts lead to the fact that a large number of people satisfies the need for history with own forces. They include themselves in the system of the visual and sensual symbols giving feeling of participation and at the same time allowing to be protected from manipulations. Widely discussed “visualization” of a historical narrative reflects transformation of modern historical consciousness of the ordinary person in the conditions of permanent crisis of professional historical science.
Key words historical consciousness, historical narrative, pragmatical turn, post-linguistic analysis, visualization
