Remembering as Reparation: Psychoanalysis and Historical Memory - Studies in the Psychosocial (Paperback)Karl Figlio (author)
- We can order this
This psychoanalytic line of thinking converges with historical scholarship on post-war German memory and memorialization. Remembering is posited as ambivalent - it is reparative, in `remembering true', with respect and self-respect. It is also manic reparative, in `remembering false', shedding bonds to the actuality of history through acts of triumph and liberation.
This thoughtful book highlights new features of history and memory work, especially the importance of emotion, and will be of great value to students, academics and practitioners across the fields of psychoanalysis, memory studies, German studies and modern history.
