... Mnemosophy? Just upgrading the proposal of Heritology
as the Science of Public Memory - by Tomislav Šola
Our attentiveness is being reduced to blips of pictures and clippings of text. I am adjusting to it by proposing one-slide-lecture format. Some of the five thousand digital slides that I have accumulated during the decades of lecturing may thus find a way to live. Most have been published in some way or will be. As a museum addict and reformer, I have proposed heritology (1982) instead of museology and, to radicalise my solitary endeavour, - mnemosophy (1987). I wish to continue this far-reaching suggestion, hoping to be pardoned for the use of Global English and personal attitudes.
