Strange how many terms spring to mind with respect to historicization (our “first referential field” as you put it). But, then again, historicization is a strange operation, or at least it ought to be made strange, so that historical process is made to appear in reconstruction as strange, as implausible yet undeniable as it was when it was being lived. So I guess my keyword in this regard has to be: “estrangement.”
