History Philosophy

Constructing an argument for a historical piece of work is somewhat different from an argument for a philosophical piece. Let's say that an argument in both disciplines is logically derived from a premise and the same goes for a negation of the thesis. However, history is confined to the available sources whereas philosophy rather depends on the logical representation.

This student compares their experience of writing history and philosophy and suggests that 'supporting a premise' may be quite different in the two disciplines. They suggest that philosophy relies on reasoning and logic, history more on what is known already.
