Abstract

El texto se estructura en torno a cuatro conjeturas. La Conjetura de Mauthausen plantea que los mecanismos que provocaron las atrocidades del siglo XX siguen vigentes y listos para actuar. La Conjetura de Guantánamo sostiene que las democracias actuales son dictaduras encubiertas. La Conjetura de Azaustre se refiere a que la pérdida de sentido común y el idealismo son fruto de la alfabetización. Y la Conjetura de Galileo afirma que el paradigma de la historia como una narración lineal y oficial de autor, será superada por la historia construida a partir de mallas. Al final se aborda el tema de la llamada memoria colectiva o histórica, la memoria personal y la «magia» de las entrevistas logradas. The text is structured around four conjectures. The Mauthausen Conjecture propounds that the mechanisms which unleashed the atrocities of the 20th century are still in force and ready to operate again. The Guantánamo Conjecture states that present-day democracies are undercover dictatorships. The Azaustre Conjecture explains the loss of common sense and the upsurge of idealism as a result of the spread of literacy. And the Galileo Conjecture declares that the paradigm of history as a linear and official author's account will be superseded by network-constructed history. The final part is devoted to the so-called collective or historical memory, personal memory and the «magic» of successful interviews.
