(p.9) 1 The One and the Many
Fragmentation and Memory

Karmen MacKendrick

Fordham University Press

This chapter provides a history of the linked topics of memory and fragmentation, in a review of the classic philosophical version of recollection and fragmentation—the problem of the one and the many—in which people find early considerations of the relations of temporal and eternal as well. The brief and highly selective glance at history offered here is one way into the questions of memory and fragmentation. It speaks of the shattering of the difficult but relatively orderly problem of the one and the many into the fragments of post-Nietzschean philosophy and its curious temporalities. The chapter argues that such temporalities, for all their evident postmodernity, turn out to have considerable resonance with much older ways of thinking. Both the problem and its solutions open onto the issues that structure the rest of the text.

Keywords:   memory, fragmentation, recollection, temporal, eternal
