This study is a summary of a professional resume and a thirty-year history of a philosophical discipline. Its topic is the identification of methodological innovations in the historiography of Hungarian philosophy from the point of view of whether this story can be written as a unified narrative. It shows the process by which this historiography leaves the former positivist and Marxist perspectives and the way how it rearranges the canon. In the meantime, it also names the most important players in the canon revision. Finally, it comes to a partially proven hypothesis, according to which the history of Hungarian philosophy can be understood as the history of discourse forms.
