On the difficulty of living together

by Manuel Cruz | 26 April 2016
Category: Philosophy
Manuel Cruz launches a nuanced study of memory and forgetting, defining their forms and uses, political meanings, and social and historical implications. Memory is not an intrinsically positive phenomenon, he argues, but an impressionable and malleable one, used to advance a variety of agendas. He focuses on five memory models: that which is inherently valuable; that which legitimises the present; that which supports retributive justice; that which is essential to mourning; and that which elicits renunciation or revelation.
