What is the matter?

Question 1. What is the matter with memory anyway?

Question 2. Why do we abstract experience into the flawed copy that is linguistic memory in order to operate recall?

Question 3. Is remembering actually a form of forgetting, in which we purposely move away from the experience into the abstract?

Question 4. Do we mean forgetting when we say remembering?


“memory becomes important as failure rather than achievement”.

(292; Derrida J. in Krell, Of Memory, Reminiscence, and Writing),
