The pietas of thinking: memory, testimony, forgetfulness

Nowadays, speaking of “the pietas of thinking” could be considered as a reference to a general
“religiousness”, to a “devotion” which could remove the dismay that crosses both reality and its
questioning. For philosophical thought, “the pietas of thinking” can also refer to a specific way of
questioning the present time, the world, man through memory and testimony, and also through
forgetfulness (which could be a hidden resource of memory and testimony).
In the course of history, philosophy has always investigated its own process, and because of this it
acknowledged that one of its main goals is to be accountable to its work of memory (as implied by
the idea of tradition), or to its work of testimony and, again, to its struggle against the forgetfulness
which is often the principal cause of the return of ancient violence or fatal ideologies.
Memory, testimony and forgetfulness intersect or intercept debates which involve Europe and the
Western World culturally, philosophically, socially and politically, and they commit philosophy to
reshape itself in the light of new forthcoming challenges (as, for instance, the question of
“forgiveness” or even the problem of memory in the Internet era).
