Religion and Cultural Memory (tr. Rodney Livingstone),
Jan Assmann, Stanford University Press, 2006, page 25
So what is stored memory? Jan Assmann explains ...
Stored memory is amorphous and without boundaries; the structuring principles that create frm and hirizob because they grow out of the group's need for identity, normativity and orientation are absent.
So can it be accessed and used?
This does not mean that the contents of stored memory and inaccessible in principle, repressed, banisged, or otherwise unavailable. They may be all or any of these things.
A library, for xample, must surely be a stored memory device?
