Reference in Remembering Workshop

Séminaire Recherche
30 juin 2022 - 2 juillet 2022Saint-Martin-d'Hères - Domaine universitaire
A 3-day workshop bringing together researchers from around the world. Workshop organisé par le Centre de Philosophie de la Mémoire (CPM)

Episodic memory enables us to consciously ‘relive’ experienced events from our personal past. You might remember making coffee this morning and sensorily recall what it was like to smell the coffee grounds or to see the kettle reach a boil. Success in this activity requires that there be a certain relationship between your present act of remembering and the past event in question, yet the reference-fixing and accuracy conditions of episodic remembering remain obscure. The thriving work on memory in philosophy and the sciences strongly suggests that continued progress requires more attention—and new approaches—to these particular issues. The aim of the proposed workshop is to cast new light on the multi-faceted relationship between reference, singular thought, and remembering by bringing together, for the first time, researchers specializing on these topics.
