This paper presents an outline for how the concept of historical consciousness can be understood regarding its definition, application, and qualitative character, its relation to other history didactical concepts (i.e. ‘historical culture’ and ‘historical use’), its development, its significance, and, finally, how an aggregated understanding of the concept can be used as an interpretive framework for Nation-building.
