Abstract

Esta investigação tem como principal escopo compreender as relações dialécticas entre o esquecimento e a memória. Nesse sentido, procura analisar o fundamento antropológico do esquecimento e as formas do qual se reveste. De modo semelhante, intenta investigar as bases essenciais da memória e a sua ligação a determinados objectos físicos, encarados como meio de revestir uma certa forma de redenção, ou, pelo menos, de libertação das inegáveis energias negativas associadas a qualquer fenómeno de violência.

This research’s main scope is to understand the dialectical
relations between forgetfulness and memory. In this sense,
it seeks to analyze the anthropological foundation of
forgetfulness and the forms it takes. Similarly, it attempts to
investigate the essential basis of memory and its connection
to certain physical objects, seen as a means of providing a
certain form of redemption, or, at least, of the liberation of
the undeniable negative energies associated with any
phenomenon of violence
