The author maintains that the relationship between history and sociology is inevitable and ambiguous at the same time. The two disciplines should cooperate without giving in to the temptation of confusing each other into a single scientific body. History of the event is not incompatible with the long durée approach. On the other hand, irrespective of the positive findings of "quanto-history", it seems irrefutable that history consists in the end in a more or less logically close-knit narration. The author contends that, contrary to the views expressed by such prominent scholars as Arnaldo Momigliano, and others, the contradiction between history and autobiographies, life stories, and so on, is untenable. From this point of view, the contribution of sociology, and in a general sense of social sciences, to history can prove to be, finally, both important and enriching.
