Abstract
In the article the author tries to objectify widely used in humanitarian texts the concept of “weight” characterizing the scale of the phenomenon and its impact on the historical process. He proposes to use two “counter” approach: encyclopedic and structural calculation of the accumulation uniformly appreciate the interaction with the rest of society and evaluation of the place, the proportion of the phenomenon in the total structure of society. The author shows that both approaches lead to the same order of digits that speaks about possibility of formalization of the “weight” of historical events and personalities, a more balanced selection of historical material.
