Les expériences du temps sont multiples. Chaque société entretient un rapport particulier avec le passé, le présent et le futur. En comparant les manières d'articuler ces temporalités, François Hartog met en évidence divers "régimes d'historicité".

Ulysse en Phéacie ou les Maori de Fidji ont d'autres kinds de souvenirs que les personnages bibliques. Douze siècles séparent Ulysse des Confessions d'Augustin, qui s'inscrivent dans un régime d'historicité proprement chrétien.

Dans l'ancien régime d'historicité, le crossé éclaire l'avenir. Après los angeles Révolution de 1789, le temps est accélération et l. a. leçon vient du futur. Se met en position le régime moderne d'historicité. Chateaubriand ne cesse par son écriture de passer de l. a. rive de l'ancien à celle du régime moderne.

Dans les deux dernières décennies du XXe siècle, l. a. mémoire est venue au superior plan. Le présent aussi. Histoire du présent, Les Lieux de mémoire ont exploré ces mots du temps: commémoration, mémoire, patrimoine, country, identité. Tandis que le temps lui-même devenait, toujours plus, objet de consommation et marchandise.

Historien attentif au présent, François Hartog notice l. a. montée en puissance d'un présent omniprésent, qu'il nomme "présentisme". Cette expérience contemporaine d'un présent perpétuel, chargé d'une dette tant à l'égard du moveé que du futur, signe, peut-être, le passage d'un régime d'historicité à un autre.

Serait-on crossé insensiblement de l. a. suggestion d'histoire à celle de mémoire?
