¿De qué hablamos cuando hablamos de 'memoria histórica'? Reflexiones desde la Psicología cognitiva
The aim of this work is to provide the reader with a brief overview of the foundations of human memory from the perspective of Cognitive Psychology, in order to supply a theoretical framework to assess the scientific plausibility and validity of terms such as 'collective memory', 'social memory' and, above all, 'historical memory'. After arguing that this three terms lack an epistemological justification, it is concluded that so-called 'historical memory' fulfills a social, political and moral function, both rightful and necessary, which is to remember the victims of Francoism and to claim their right to truth, justice, and reparation.
