Abstract

In this specially commissioned volume of essays for Bloomsbury Press the editors, Professor Keith Ansell Pearson (Warwick) and Dr. Justine Baillie (Greenwich) bring together philosophers and literary and cultural theorists in an effort to radically re-think the time of modernity with respect to questions of memory, of the past, of tradition, of history, and of the new. We are especially interested in approaches that will re-examine a classic text or a neglected text in philosophy and/or theory; in essays that explore the uses and disadvantages of memory for life; and in analyses that reflect on contemporary conceptions of memory and its role in our appreciation of post-modernity and after.
