Looking back on the early exploration process of academic memory research and exploring the path of the proposed collective memory theory, that is, sociologists need to investigate the social construction of memory and the game and hegemony process of power behind it, and pay attention to the multiple diversity and dynamic frameworks. There is no established and clear definition of collective memory, which provides an open framework for the follow-up theoretical orientation and extension at different levels. The study of collective memory focuses on the first cause of immediacy, and the practical behavior reflects its constructive role. Through the cultural and media attributes in reproduction, it forms a kind of “psychological facility” to achieve the practical purpose.
