Memory is a fundamental element of human—and more broadly, animal—intelligence and experience. Given memory’s importance, its complexities are bound up with topics throughout philosophy. Memory plays a critical role in many philosophical inquiries, including discussion of cognition, persons, time, knowledge, and responsibility. In addition, the interdisciplinary studies of memory—empirical and otherwise—furnish material deserving of serious philosophical work. As the community of scholars interested in memory, both in and out of philosophy, grows, memory continues to show that it is a topic worthy of sustained philosophical attention.

Essays in Philosophy invites the submission of papers that give philosophical treatments of any aspect or aspects of memory. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

The metaphysics of memory
Varieties of remembering and their interrelations
Interdisciplinarity and methodology in the study of memory
Memories and Mental Content
Collective, transactive, or cultural memory
Construction and reconstruction in remembering
The phenomenology of memory
Extended, situated, and distributed remembering
Epistemological issues regarding memory
Memory, time, and persons
