The paper is devoted to the concept of “cultural memory” by the famous modern German Egyptologist and cultural critic Jan Assmann. The relevance of the problem of cultural and historical continuity during the crisis of the ideals of globalism and multiculturalism is shown by the example of a number of important mechanisms of cultural tradition functioning, which are equally characteristic of both ancient and modern civilizations.
