Keywords: history; history theory; memory
Summary/Abstract: Le Goff presents his own ideas and other contemporary concepts of history. He deliberates on the theory of history and historiography, inscribing their issues in the history of ideological and scientific disputes. He looks for continuity and similarities in the transformations of historical knowledge throughout the history of civilization. This book preceded one of the most important discussions today - the debate on memory and history. Le Goff was actively involved in this discussion until his death, contributing to a better understanding of the story itself. Without Jacques Le Goff, it is impossible to imagine modern historiography [...], he not only writes about fascinating things, but he does it in an interesting way, ensuring that the recipient of his books is anyone interested in history, not just a professional historian (From the Introduction to the Polish edition).
