There is one severe manner we honor nice tragedies: via never forgetting. Collective remembrance is as previous as human society itself, serving as a massive resource of social solidarity, but as Jeffrey Andrew Barash indicates during this publication, it has served novel roles in a contemporary period in a different way characterised by way of discontinuity and dislocation. Drawing on contemporary theoretical explorations of collective reminiscence, he elaborates a huge new philosophical foundation for it, one who unveils very important barriers to its scope in terms of the ancient past.


Crucial to Barash’s research is a glance on the radical variations that the symbolic configurations of collective reminiscence have gone through with the increase of latest applied sciences of mass communique. He provocatively demonstrates how such applied sciences’ capability to simulate direct experience—especially through the image—actually makes extra palpable collective memory’s boundaries and the opacity of the history, which continually lies past the achieve of dwelling reminiscence. Thwarting skepticism, notwithstanding, he finally seems to be to literature—specifically writers reminiscent of Marcel Proust, Walter Scott, and W. G. Sebald—to discover sophisticated nuances of temporality that will supply inconspicuous trademarks of a previous old reality.
