Przeszłość zamknięta, przeszłość otwarta

Maciej Bugajewski


Closed Past, Open Past


I consider in my text two genres of historiosophical reflection. The first one is trying to work out the interpretation of history as a whole. The second one analyses relationships between the interpreted past and the anticipated future, by which following situations weave themselves into the history. One can find an example of the second genre of reflection in the works of Paul Ricoeur, Timothy Snyder and Thet Sambath. The first of them realizes the tension between striving for happy memory and violence in the past; the second one is convinced about impossibility to close history; the third one indicates the sorrow as the effect of confessing the truth of the past crimes.

Keywords: historiosophy, closure of history, historiography, happy memory, temporalisation.
