This article contributes notes towards the development of a communicative approach to investigating archives. Such an approach is vital if one wishes to review features ranging from political or cultural reference points to the ecology of communication in the modern state. Through splicing together recent developments in the philosophy of mind with scientific publications on the bio-chemical cognitive process of memory, a case is presented where the archive is a useful bedrock concept when considering communication processes. A latent goal turns on the hope of sparking a renewed appreciation of archival systems and their place within the wider body of communication theory.
