Content and Contextual Analysis of Selected Primary Sources in Philippine History Learning Objectives: • To familiarize oneself with the primary documents in different historical periods of the Philippines. • To learn history through primary sources. • To properly interpret primary sources through examining the contact and context of the document. • To understand the context behind each selected document. The historian’s primary tool of understanding and interpreting the past is the historical sources. Historical sources ascertain historical facts. Such facts are then analyzed and interpreted by the historian to weave historical narrative. Using primary sources in historical research entails two kinds of criticism. The first one is EXTERNAL CRITICISM and the second is INTERNAL CRITICISM. EXTERNAL CRITICISM examines the authenticity of the document or the evidence being used while INTERNAL CRITICISM examines the truthfulness of the content of the evidence.
