Socratic irony already stated that philosophy did not progress because it always devoted itself to the same matters; philosophical knowledge, besieged by the question of legitimacy, shows its regenerative capacity by always going back to its historical-conceptual foundations. Hence, whoever tried to define the essence of philosophy leaving history aside will be in danger of narrow dogmatism. In its factical situation philosophical reflection deals with issues referred to previous knowledge and opinions which determine the limits to the rationality claims of its knowledge. Philosophical truth is temporal, like any other human truth.
