Abstract: The author reflects on memory as a cultural category. Memory belongs to the order of the world of culture and controls the rules of social life, both group and individual. Memory is a cultural value, an axiological basis, without which it is impossible to imagine social life in its many forms (nation, state, church, family, university, etc.). By connecting the present with the past, memory opens the view to the future. Memory is needed to understand the processes and complexities of modern times, and at the same time is a necessary instrument in forecasting and constructing the course and shape of future social life forms and cultural forms. The author characterizes the importance of memory, its roles and functions in society and culture. Finally, it signals the problem of constructing oblivion and introduces categories of memory transfusion.
