What is the epistemological value of testimony? What role does language, images, and memory play in its construction? What is the relationship between the person who attests and those who listen? Is bearing witness a concept that is exclusively based in interpersonal relations? Or are there other modes of communicating or mediating to constitute a constellation of testimony? Testimony/Bearing Witness establishes a dialogue between the different approaches to testimony in epistemology, historiography, law, art, media studies and psychiatry. With examples including the Holocaust, the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields and the Armenian genocide the volume discusses the chances and limits of communicating epistemological and ethical, philosophical and cultural-historical, past and present perspectives on the phenomenon and concept of bearing witness.
Sybille Krämer is former Professor of Philosophy at Freie Universität Berlin and from 2019 she will hold a senior professorship at Leuphana University Lueneburg. Sigrid Weigel is former Director of the Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung (ZfL) in Berlin.
