This chapter reviews key theoretical and conceptual approaches within the social sciences including social psychology and the humanities and to identify common and complementary features that allow one to communicate across disciplines. It also explores the dynamics between the individual, the collective, and the wider culture, which inevitably takes the discussion beyond individualized psychological constructs into the realm of history, sociology, politics, and international relations.

The study of the collective past involves the study of cognition, communication, and culture. The various conceptions that embrace the idea of a collective past inevitably draw one into a discussion of taxonomies classifications , descriptions, and definitions.

For most of the post-transitional period, an interpretative consensus prevailed that all the democratic governments, including the post-communist SLD, unanimously agreed to conduct a Western-oriented foreign policy, the pillars of which were to be EU and NATO accessions.
Today, this consensus in being openly put into question and deemed false. The third enlargement refers to the deepening of the mnemonic conflict or the degree to which it penetrates society. No dominant all-encompassing narrative of collective memory exists in the society, one which would accommodate all the conflictive interpretative demands.
Since , the matter in question has become much more detailed. Although the processes described here are still ongoing — which renders it impossible to predict their final outcome — the possible consequences to the Polish society can be sketched out. Such multi-dimensional enlargement of the mnemonic conflict results in the opening of another sub-front of this memory war. It moves from a nationwide, more abstract level to one with a much more local, personal dimension.
It is a conscious strategy of the memory excluder, as it is perhaps the only way to establish a total monopoly over collective memory narratives.

Be that as it may, such strategies may prove counterproductive, as fighting too many battles within the mnemonic conflict can result in the excluder developing a chaotic narrative and losing control over the memory debate. The group can as well reject the newly implanted approach and strengthen a narrative which the memory excluder opposes. Law and Justice as a memory excluder are playing with fire in a very delicate dimension of collective memory and identity politics.
These initiatives have the potential to bring about either a major success or a total failure.
Social Memory, Evidence, and Conflict
Regardless of their final outcomes, however, they will translate into exacerbating political polarisation, weakening further the already damaged social cohesion and sense of unity. Over the past several years, it has become ever more apparent that the post-Cold War era of democratic reform, socio-economic development and Western integration in Central Europe is coming to an end.

Raising red herrings The second crucial theoretical framework in examining mnemonic policies is the so-called alternative approach to use memory politics. Warriors vs Abnegators vs Excluders The historical revisionism ushered in by PiS in Poland calls for the establishment of a new analytical category within the existing typology of mnemonic actors.
The game plan The expansion of the mnemonic conflict takes place primarily in three dimensions.
