Между ностальгией и ретротопией
The notion of nostalgia has been used across various social sciences and humanities, having been rethought many times and acquiring many conceptual configurations. These configurations are not always easy to integrate with each other. Yet a number of new approaches have emerged that make it possible to look upon a person’s (a collective’s, a society’s) attitude to their pass diﬀerently. The brightest of them all is the theory of retrotopia as provided by Zygmunt Bauman in his last book. Thus the article has two goals. First, various approaches to theories of nostalgia are observed. Second, it is an attempt to fnd out how Bauman’s retrotopia could help to think more clearly about the problems traditionally discussed within theories of nostalgia.
