Issues in Philosophy of Memory

Description

This graduate seminar aims at exploring issues in philosophy of memory. Philosophy of memory is a field of research associated with and intimately linked to philosophy of mind and more specifically, the personal identity debate. The seminar will combine two key elements: a historical and a topical one. We will look into the classical theories of memory of Aristotle, St. Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, John Locke, Thomas Reid, David Hume, as well some of the contemporary theories of Bertrand Russell, Henri Bergson, and Paul Ricoeur. The topics that will be explored in the seminar will range from memory and meaning construction, memory and self, memory and time, to memory and morality, and memory and society.
