LEE, Peter. Why learn History?. Educ. rev. [online]. 2011, n.42, pp. 19-42. ISSN 0104-4060.

Knowing that nobody escapes from the past and the importance of the relationship that people establish with the past, this aimed to point out some fundaments for the meaning of History learning, based in researches related to History's philosophy. Thus, themes such as the importance of History to validate the past, the relevance of evidences, the problematic of laws and generalizations and also the meaning of vicarial experience to build the learning of History were objects of analysis with the objective of showing why it is important to learn History.

Keywords : History learning; Historical Education; epistemology of History learning.
