Despite an explosion of studies on memory in historical and cultural studies, there is relatively little in moral philosophy on this subject. In this book, Jeffrey Blustein provides a systematic and philosophically rigorous account of a morality of memory. Drawing on a broad range of philosophical and humanistic literatures, he offers a novel examination of memory and our relations to people and events from our past, the ways in which memory is preserved and transmitted, and the moral responsibilities associated with it. Blustein treats topics of responsibility for one's own past; historical injustice and the role of memory in doing justice to the past; the relationship of collective memory to history and identity; collective and individual obligations to remember those who have died, including those who are dear to us; and the moral significance of bearing witness.

Review:

'This is a rigorous and weighty work of the moral philosophy of memory. It encourages reflection on why we remember what we do and the wider purposes that our memories serve. ... therapists reading this book will gain valuable insights which may be of benefit to their patients given the central role of memories in the therapeutic encounter ...' Journal of Mental Health

Book Description:
