Memory, Time and the Self

Fall 2018

Taught By: Ross Poole

Section: A

CRN: 7152

Credits: 3

At least since Locke, philosophers have been concerned with the relationship between memory and the identity of the self; in the near background, is the idea that it is through memory that we acquire a conception of time. In this course, we will investigates these relationships, not only through philosophy, but also through psychoanalysis and literature. It will fall into five sections: (i) Locke and his critics; (ii) Nietzsche; (iii) Bergson and Proust; (iv) Freud’s conceptions of memory; (v) Contemporary philosophy of mind and philosophical psychology.
