The Esthetic Nature of Recollection
Languages of publication
The main objective of the paper is to investigate how reflection on the ‘nature of recollection’ may change under the influence of transformations in understanding moder- nity. The analysis covers the esthetic dimension of the recollection process. Recollection has gradually solidified its position: from comprehensive conceptualizations of human temporality to various analyses of time experience, resulting in distinguishing memory as a separate issue, and finally to detailed considerations of its forms. The current trends in research are set, on the one hand, by new historiography and memory studies, and, on the other hand, by reflection on perception and body memory. In either case the esthetic aspect of recollection (memories) can clearly be observed. The esthetic is connected with either the ‘poetic’ (in the creative sense) aspect of the processes of recollection understood as a process of narrative building or aisthetic reconstruction by body memory.
