Abstract
A counter-factual modeling is considered, which is of the past (CFM) as a means of solving pedagogical tasks within a number of humanitarian disciplines (historical science, philosophy of history, social philosophy, etc.). The purpose of the article is to highlight specific forms of the CFM use in pedagogy. It has been revealed that CFM is most often used for simulation and comparative analysis, implemented and potential variants. It was shown that in the first case the following pedagogical methods had been used: preparation for future activities; learning from the experience of more successful predecessors; expansion of the variability of cogitation and action; move away from the fatalistic perception of the past. In the second case — other methods were used: identifying trends in the formation of potential events; the establishment of complex principles of non-implementation of events; the need to give descriptions of surreal situations. In combination, these means of knowledge make the study of the past an interesting and useful process for people nowadays.
