History, that is, the creation of a narrative around facts concentrated in the past. Historiography is what historians do; it is opposed to History (or history) in this sense by being somewhat more honest about its intentions: historiography has no inherent quest for Truth. In postmodernism, historiography is used as a synonym for what is commonly understood as history, empiricists view historiography as merely 'the craft of history', that is, the process that this historian uses to construct History to equal (or approximate) Truth.
