Chapter Summary

This chapter first presents the socio-cognitive approach, which constitutes the theoretical point of departure for the discussion on memories and other beliefs about the past. It then discusses analogism and other mechanisms for explaining the ways in which beliefs about the past matter for action in the present. It also discusses how and in what ways memories and other beliefs about the past become intersubjective: culture (collective memory sites as a factor creating intersubjective uniformities in memories and other beliefs about the past), structural equivalence (similar experiences as well as interest-driven distortions as factors creating intersubjective uniformities in memories and other beliefs about the past), social network belonging (symmetries and asymmetries in information as a factor creating intersubjective uniformities in memories and other beliefs about the past), and social category belonging (identity-driven distortions as a factor creating intersubjective uniformities in memories and other beliefs about the past).

Keywords: analogism; intersubjective memory; intersubjective uniformities; social category belonging; social network belonging; socio-cognitive approach
