RABINOVICH, Silvana. In memoriam: entre cerdos y buhos (o los viejos: nuestro futuro). Acta poét [online]. 2006, vol.27, n.2, pp.129-150. ISSN 2448-735X.

Following Jean-Yves' and Marc Tadié's ideas in their book Le sens de la mémoire, this article explores memory as a sense: a physical sense along with the other five senses; sense as the meaning of subjectivity and sense as a direction of memory in the time dimension. These reflections aim at questioning the well-known "memory loss" associated with old age. We argue that, even though the instrumental aspect of memory is affected by aging, this phenomenon enables the development of other forms of memory. Jean-Yves Tadié is well-known as the curator of Proust works, and his brother Marc, as a neurosurgeon. Together, they achieved a wide and deep interdisciplinary approach on memory. This article addresses various literary texts (a novel and a short story by Adolfo Bioy Casares, some poems by Baudelaire, and Felis-berto Hernández' narrative texts) as well as ethical and political issues related to memory and old age, and intertwines them with thoughts on memory as a sense.
