Cultural Memory and Identity in Ancient Societies
It investigates how cultures remember, arguing that human memory exists and is communicated in two ways, namely inter-human interaction and in external systems of notation, such as writing, which can span generations. Assmann defines two theoretical concepts of cultural memory, differentiating between the long-term memory of societies, which can span up to 3, years, and communicative memory, which is typically restricted to years.
He applies this theoretical framework to case studies of four specific cultures, illustrating the function contexts and specific achievements, including the state, international law, religion, and science. Exploring the balance between memory as survival and memory as reconstruction, and between memory and historically recorded fact, this volume unearths the way ancient societies formed their cultural identity.
