The world is then limited in its temporal extensions just as in its spatial extensions. It consists of limited spatio-temporalities. If it is limited, confined and particular, how can a universal history of the world, or indeed a world history, be meaningfully envisaged? This is where we come to the basic presuppositions of the initial statement. The basic difficulty with the universal history stems from the fact that the object of it (the universe) does not seem to be readily definable compared to the ‘societal’ or ‘national’ history whose object has a more readily definable and identifiable character.

History proper’ may be confined to the past, but it does not encapsulate the whole of historical knowledge. Objectivist and subjectivist conceptions of history The two different approaches to human knowledge that I have analysed in the previous chapter, namely objectivism and subjectivism/ relativism, have been argued for history, too. The objectivist understanding of history refers to the view that a commonly acceptable, universally objective knowledge of history can be achievable and only history as such forms the true history.

The constitution of our knowledge too relies upon distinctions. Without distinction no identity, without ‘me’ no ‘others’, without ‘mind’ no ‘body’, without ‘theory’ no ‘facts’, without ‘object’ no ‘subject’, and so on. To theorize or to explain something means to historicize it, to historicize in the sense of locating and placing it within, and together with, its locality or environment. In the human world, a particular known can only be known together with the general known which has a larger spatio-temporality.
