Abstract

The current memory inable to understand its past e to plan its future, require a philosophical reflection on the original human ability to make memory: in this regard, the ricoeurian hermeneutic of Oneself as another rediscovers in the «being able to remember» the key to the creation of the personal and collective identity. The enigma of the representation of the past, thus, brings Ricoeur to outline the «project» of a reconciled memory, in its ontological bond with oblivion, an immemorial resource of life and history. The French philosopher’s contribution help us to redefine a human-sized memory, which in its mortality, in its being from-Other and for-Other, is called to mend meaningful human relations within a cosmopolitan and plural political context, in the awareness that the «translator’s task» is the most urgent challenge for the future to come.
