Eugeniu Carada:The Dynamic of Perceptions Across Time

Very often we see that our perceptions about a specific time or a specific personmay   be   altered   by   bias,   ideology   or   simplybymisunderstandingfacts.Based on the information preserved in the press andinmemoirs, we  will  try  to  follow how  the  representations  of  various generations  concerning  a  character —Eugeniu  Carada,  in  this  case —transited  from  passionate  criticism  to  adulation  and  praises.  This  article argues  in  favour  of  accepting  that  our  ways  of  understanding  the  past  and the  sense  of  the past  are often  tributary  to  either  a  rhetoric  that  is propagandistic (intentionally ornot), or to legitimization exercises, or even to the temptation of leaving behind a certain image for posterity.
