Our Faithfulness to the Past

The Ethics and Politics of Memory

Sue Campbell
Edited by Christine M. Koggel and Rockney Jacobsen

Studies in Feminist Philosophy

  • Collectively, the essays present the first theory of successful remembering that is adequate to new reconstructionist theories about the nature of memory.
  • The theory developed in these essays theory allows us to see the influence of others — those with whom we share our recollections of the past - as enabling rather than distorting the shaping and reshaping of identities.
