46 Cicero uses the wax tablet image itself a bit later in Antonius’s speech. 47 The contemporaneous Rhetorica ad Herennium, which gives us the most detailed description of the ancient architectural mnemonic, also contains the fullest elaboration of the metaphor that likens writing on the memory to writing on wax or papyrus: those who have learned mnemonics can set in backgrounds what they have heard, and from these backgrounds deliver it by memory. 48 Models for the memory 33 The metaphor changes slightly over the centuries to reflect the most common form of writing materials, but its tenacity in Western thought is remarkable.
They answer to principles that define and describe how reminiscence occurs, what it is, and what it is supposed to do. And among those tasks, iteration per se was not considered sufficient. ’’ All mnemonic organizational schemes are heuristic in nature. ’’ The word ‘‘heuristic’’ derives from a Greek verb meaning ‘‘to find,’’ and I use it to mean any scheme or construct that is ‘‘valuable for stimulating or conducting empirical research but unproved or incapable of proof’’ itself (in the definition of Webster’s Third International Dictionary).
Such assumptions put the civic bond on a historically continuous basis, and make the notion of shared meaning less arbitrary and merely occasional than most modern ‘‘functional’’ theories of language tend to do. 33 Adaequatio is a word of relationship, ‘‘adjustment,’’ ‘‘fitting’’ a word to what one wants to say. The prefix is crucial to its meaning, not a dead metaphor. Aequatio and its adjective, aequalis, convey the notion of iteration, ‘‘equal,’’ identity of a formal, quantifiable sort. But in this dictum, truth contained in words is always ad-aequatio, getting towards identity but never achieving it.
