The purpose of the workshop is to build a methodological sensitivity of high school students in the field of history. Students learn about the difficulties of historian's workshop: conditions for formulating the hypotheses, influence of non-substantive factors on historical description, historical distortions in transmission of primary source and formation of collective cognitive patterns based on them. In work groups, students undertake a critical analysis of the "evident" knowledge about Aristotle's Metaphysics, confronting them with the ancient and medieval sources and discovering the semantic distortions in the successive historical receptions of the work.
