Current controversies in philosophy of memory: Editors’ introduction

André Sant’Anna, Christopher Jude McCarroll, Kourken Michaelian

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


‘If philosophy begins with wonder’, Edward Furlong tells the reader, ‘then the philosophy of memory should have made a good beginning’. Memory is a theme that a growing community of philosophers has been wondering over and puzzling about. A distinctive feature of recent philosophy of memory has been its close engagement with empirical disciplines, such as psychology and neuroscience, which have memory among their objects of study. The surge of philosophical interest in episodic memory has brought to light a number of controversial questions about that form of memory that have only recently begun to be addressed in detail. The chapter also presents an overview on the key concepts discussed in this book.
