Abstract

The problem of historical consciousness is vastly discussed at philosophical circles these days. The basic question is how can we have access to the past and is it possible yet. Theory of a sublime historical experience by Frank R. Ankersmit gives an answer to this question by arguing “forgetting” as a crucial element of modern historical consciousness. While developing this approach he author elaborate the integration of some sort of “forgetting in museum’s policy” and “policy of memory” as a whole and make proofs that “forgetting” is a fundamental aspect of the policy of memory, and when it is neglected it makes these policies open to manipulation which gains alternative in sublime historical experience.
