Aegyptiaca. Journal of the History of Reception of Ancient Egypt: Mnemohistory and Cultural Memory - Essays in Honour of Jan Assmann
Nr. 3 (2018)
This issue of Aegyptiaca. Journal of the History of Reception of Ancient Egypt pays tribute to the scientific work of Jan Assmann, whose concept of mnemohistory has laid the methodological foundation for the researching into the history of reception of ancient Egypt. The articles featured in this issue make clear how much cultural science, musicology, literary studies, philosophy, history of religion or archaeology were inspired by Assmann's studies on cultural memory and, despite all their scholarship, can transcend disciplinary boundaries and be joyful science.
