    Desire for the past?2015In: Rethinking history, ISSN 1364-2529, E-ISSN 1470-1154, Vol. 19, no 4, p. 569-582Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In contemporary historical theory, quite a few historians and philosophers of history say that they desire the past and want to get in contact with it. This desire is modeled on the classical notion of eros and the idea of a constitutive lack in being that the desirable object is believed to take away. This notion of desire informs theories by historians such as Gabrielle S. Spiegel, Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht, F.R. Ankersmit, and Eelco Runia who thereby unreflectingly repeat a Platonic-idealistic framework that is at odds with what we commonly associate with a historical attitude. I also try to show that an alternative to this notion of desire for the past can be found in the theme of survival in Runia's philosophy of presence.

    Fascination in Julio Cortàzar's "Axolotl"2019In: Partial Answers, ISSN 1565-3668, E-ISSN 1936-9247, Vol. 17, no 1, p. 49-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Julio Cortázar’s short story “Axolotl” is a literary analysis of fascination. Situating the story in the history of fascination, the article highlights how it repeats well-known themes from this history. Cortázar’s short story also shows how authors have been able to use fascination as a productive force. I argue that Cortázar’s fascination is intimately connected to temporality, especially the time structure associated with reminders. As such, the fascinating story of a man’s obsession with an axolotl suggests that fascination became a major aspect of cultural reproduction and reconfiguration during the 20th century.

    Abstract [en]

    Self-preservation is usually associated with biological drives and instincts. In the case of mankind, self-preservation has also been associated with self-love and the prevention of one's own extinction by avoiding life-threatening situations. Self-preservation as a love of finite existence is also something that is at the heart of the historian's endeavor. The historian's love of finite existence and the idea of self-preservation have self-love in common. But the historian's love also embraces other existences than his own. This love of finitude cannot be separated from a will to prevent the extinction of finite existences and to allow their existence to continue in history. The article traces the love of finitude in autobiographies written by Swedish historians in the last 150 years. In the analysis, nature represents everything that extinguishes finite existences and history represents the preservation of humans in time. I argue that this issue recurs in many autobiographies although often only mentioned in the margins as random utterances or comments made in passing. The texts analyzed are the autobiographies of Erik Gustaf Geijer (1783-1847), Wilhelm Erik Svedelius (1816-1889), Alma Soderhjelm (1870-1949) and Ronny Ambjornsson (b. 1936).
