Abstract

As the paper's subtitle suggests, my intention has been to present my views in a format that is decidedly different from the standard style of academic writing. Amalgamating the languages of scientific and literary approaches, the paper is meant to establish a common thread that runs through the separate topics of data protection literature – a leitmotif centered on the problematics of remembering and forgetting, if you will. As a result, readers will not find any numbered sections, bullet points, footnotes or end notes which would hinder the continuity of reading. There is, however, an annotated reference list at the end.
