Summary
This title examines canonical philosophies of history, memory and identity in the context of contemporary interest in finitude and the temporalities of trauma. Engaging texts spanning multiple genres and several centuries - from John Locke to Maurice Blanchot, from Hegel to Benjamin - Clift combines close readings with conceptual generalization to bring those works together as sites where the pressure to think about the impact of history on individual and collective identities is at its highest
