Mechanics against the Symbolic interprets, from a philosophical perspective, the changes in the historical thinking of Western European culture in the period of XII-XIII. At that time, under the pressure of the powerful mental and social coups, the process of distancing between the historical and the metaphysical: the separation between the history and the philosophy of history takes place. The naturalization of history and therefore the inevitable favoritism of the methodologies, typical for modernism, are reflected in the positive-mechanistic approach to the "historical". The analysis tracks the transformation of the "searching and viewing" of history, along with the fundamental notions: time, place, image, essence. The new thinking of history produces phenomena that are accepted today as "natural". These include the introduction of history into the corpus of science and the "birth of the author".
