- Memory, Happy Memory, Historical Writing
- Every society has its own history. But not all societies have known the writing and still use oral tradition as a way of recording historical facts. Meanwhile, the hegemony of opinion held by historians is the hegemony which states that "no document is written there is no history". The hegemony certainly brings a new problem for the writing of the history of a society that has not known writing, a society that still uses oral tradition as a historical source. Oral tradition in this case always relies on the memory of the speakers of historical events. This means memory serve as the source of history writing. This research aims to reveal about memory as a source of historical writing. This research is a literature study using philosophical hermeneutics method which consists of description, deduction-induction, holistic, historical continuity, language analytic, and heuristic. This study came to the result that memory can be used as a source of historical writing. This is because memory or memory is a form of knowledge even though memory has many weaknesses. Referring to the opinion of Paul Ricoeur concept is what is referred to as happy memory.
