Βιβλίο σταθμός στην επιστήμη της αρχαιογνωσίας, με εθνολογικές, ανθρωπολογικές και κοινωνιολογικές αναφορές και κύριο θέμα την πολιτισμική μνήμη ως ανάγκη του ανθρώπου να διατηρήσει την ιστορία και την ταυτότητά του στο χρόνο! Ένα βιβλίο για την μνήμη των ανθρώπων ως κοινωνία και ως πολιτισμός!

Το πρώτο μέρος έχει μια θεωρητική προσέγγιση της ιστορίας της μνήμης, όσον αφορά την μετάβαση από την επικοινωνιακή στην πολιτισμική μνήμη και - κατεπέκταση - από την τελετουργία στο κείμενο ως φορείς κατα

1) Я не уверена, что существуют книги по культурологии, не содержащие цитат из "Протестансткой этики и духа капитализма".
2) Несмотря на то, что это научный труд, ощущения как в детстве, когда читаешь про древних египтян и греков, и тебе очень интересно.
3) Ассманн - учёный того уровня, когда можно позволить себе написать в своей научной работе, что кто-то из классиков твоей темы не прав.
4) Кстати, он раскрывает и то, что такое "классика", и много других важных и интересных моментов про связь исто

As for this book, it is a further exploration in memory, obviously in light of collective memory. Unlike a socialist, author persuades it into case study and wider sphere in the very beginning of his study. Clearly, this book is divided into two parts by himself, the former is the system of theory, extends from primal collective memory to politic imagination while latter is case study.

هذا الكتاب من الكتب الرائعة التى قراتها مؤخرا مترجم وصادر عن مكتبة الاسرة في مصر..وهو بالفعل ينشط الذالكرة الحضارية .وابرز ما لفت النظر فيه تخصيصه فصلا كاملا عن الحضارة المصرية القديمة وكيف انهم اول من اخترعوا مفهوم الدولة في التاريخ ( الاخوان كانوا عاوزين يهدموها في سنة ) زو

One of the best books I've read about cultural memory theory. Super interesting and vividly written with clear examples. A must-read if you're interested in memory cultures, the formation of identities and nations/ societies, and practices of remembrance in the Ancient world.
