From Medieval Mnemonics to a Social Construction of Memory - page 21 / 23





21 / 23



commissions are condoned junctures of state, religious, and civil discourse on the legal and moral ramifications of human rights abuses. The public grievances of survivors of human rights abuses (often perpetrated by the state) present an interesting intellectual contrast to the forced confessions of heretics during the Inquisition. Although these two scenarios differ, they share common themes related to human memory, emotion, and political discourse. In conclusion, this article offers one interpretation of the role of memory in historical conceptualizations of self-knowledge and consciousnesses.
