Example text

Expectations and predictions can be fulfilled or disappointed. The future horizon of a historically reconstructed past present is closed. The space for expectations in a present phase of a past lifeworld has been filled by events that already happened in the past subsequently. Predictions are meaningless in this context but causal explanations for past events are possible. Causal explanations for events that happened in a past lifeworld are, hence, an integral part of the reconstruction of this lifeworld.

Several types of such causes can be distinguished. There are first of all actions and interactions of human actors in the realm of the pre-scientific technologies of agriculture and crafts and arts. Their warrant is the raw pre-methodical lived experience in the past. There are furthermore actions and interactions as causes of events that are of positive or negative significance and value for the intersubjective social dimension of the lifeworld. If positive, such actions are considered as merits and receive praise, if negative they are considered to deserve blame, revenge, or punishment.

However, as mentioned, not fixed life expressions can not be given intersubjectively as the same again in different temporal phases. 13 Even immediate observations of not fixed life expressions can be useful only if the observer provides a description of the observations in fixed life expressions. The objects of the historical human sciences can be only fixed life expressions created on the third, on the second or, in case of contemporary history, on the first level of the past. The task of the historical human sciences is, contrary to the systematic human sciences, not to understand the significance of the fixed life expressions for the present, the task is to understand them in the context of a past real lifeworld.
