Abstract:

Hélène Feertchak and Michel-Louis Rouquette explore some aspects of the relations between
democratic values and collective memory. In this purpose, a questionnaire has been applied to a sample of French students (N=300) about the main events having impacted, either positively or negatively, the values of equality and liberty. The results show that students’ answers display :
1) an important historical pessimism : more events who happened during the XXth century have been found among negative events than among positive ones.
2) an important ethnocentric preference : more national events have been found among positive events than among negative ones.
Such a result is to compare with another one, owing to a secondary study : in a similar population, European heroes are most frequently national characters ; otherwise, they do not belong to political and democratic figures, but to artistic, cultural and scientific famous people.
