Abstract
The article discusses the rational reconstruction of the history of science and history of scientists. It attributes the history of science by identifying the scientists' motives and actions. It establishes the intermediate position between these approaches. It contends that the scientific thought history occurs on the history of scientists. It points out that there is a legitimate description for scientific thought history analysis.
