- Myth and Memory in the Pursuit of Scottish Independence. Matthew Robson.
The idea of ‘Scotland’ as nation is not a concept which resides within an independent external reality. It is one which encompasses certain enduring elements, but is also one that is subject to change. With the ultimate aim of political independence in mind, the Scottish National Party must project their vision of Scotland, differentiating it from England and the rest of the UK, whilst attempting to reconcile these efforts with the specific political context in which it finds itself. One tactic which can be used to achieve this is to plunder and emphasize certain historical themes and myths which have shaped the Scottish nation and its national identity. This way, the project will resonate with the Scottish people, igniting emotions, and at times, helping to deflect questions surrounding the validity and coherence of the arguments being made.
