Abstract

In the current issue of JISS, we discuss different forms of human thought related to nostalgia, replying to Luri Conceicao’s commentary (2017; see this present issue of JISS). With regard to the distinction between normal and pathological nostalgia, we argue for a socio-psychological approach to the construction of thought as it has been evolved over the last sixty years. We base our dialogue on the theories of social representations, social memory/ oblivion and cognitive polyphasia. Our goal is to bring into the discussion an alternative view of the same phenomena particularly concerning traditional distinctions that reproduce dominant modes of thought and action.
