Some Principles of Information Storage and Retrieval in Society.
Krippendorff, Klaus
Human individuals, social organizations and societies are alike in that their knowledge of past events is to some extent maintained and brought to bear on their behavior. On the individual level we know quite a bit of how this is accomplished. However, on the social level we know close to nothing. It is not the task of this paper to ascertain the reasons for this notable lack of knowledge, rather, to explore concepts that would overcome it and to point to some phenomena that might thereby become transparent. And because this is in a sense a step into no-man's land, a major portion of this paper is devoted to introductory topics, that is, to questions regarding memory, information retrieval by computers, etc. with lesser space devoted to elaborating the properties of different kinds of information storage and retrieval in society.
