Memory in a Culturological Perspective
- 107 Downloads
From the point of view of semiotics, culture represents collective intelligence and collective memory, that is, a supra-individual mechanism for preserving and transmitting messages (texts) and for creating new ones. In this sense, the field of culture can be defined as a space of shared memory, within which certain common texts are preserved and actualized. Moreover, their actualization occurs within the bounds of a certain conceptual invariant, which allows us to say that a text in the context of a new age preserves its identity to itself in the face of various interpretations.
