History is not the Past

History is not the past. History is the past in so far as it is historicised in the present – historicised in the present because it was lived in the past.

(Jacques Lacan, The Seminar of Jacques Lacan, Book 1: Freud’s Papers on Technique 1953-1954, edited by Jacques-Alain Miller, Cambridge University Press, 1988, p. 12)
