The order of application of the methods is a flexible proposal. Depending on the project, this order may change, and some methods will need to be worked in parallel.
We can distinguish between two types of methods, depending on their function. The lexical, semantic and conceptual method, the classificatory method and the comparative method can be considered enabling methods, which make possible the application of the systemic method and the historical method, while the systemic method and the historical method can be considered contextualizing methods, which interpret and give meaning to the above.
Therefore, in principle, the lexical, semantic and conceptual method, the classificatory method and the comparative method is worked first, in parallel, and the systemic method and the historical method are then worked on, one after the other, although there are connections, such as in the part of the lexical, semantic and conceptual method that studies the origin and evolution of words, which connects with the historical method.
Actually, all methods have connection points with the others, and the order of application will be marked by several conditioning factors, especially the complexity of the subject and the level of depth of the research project.
If the subject is more complex, or if the level of depth of the research project has to be very large, it will be necessary to work on all the possible connections between methods, and therefore work on the five methods in parallel.
Next we will look at the domains and sub-domains in each of the following historical periods: Paleolithic, Neolithic, Middle Ages, Modern Ages, and Contemporary Ages. For each domain and subscope in each of the periods, we will highlight the most important milestones.
The human being does things from his personal perspective, others from the company.
We focus on the company. In other words, whatever we want to understand is an element of the company.
