Call for papers – Voluntas (ISSN 2179-3786,
2019/3 – Philosophy of memory
Edited by César Schirmer dos Santos and Tiegue Vieira Rodrigues
Deadline: Aug. 30, 2019

This special issue of Voluntas investigates the topic of memory from a broad variety of perspectives: historical and thematic, ancient and modern, a priori and a posteriori. The puzzle of the experience of the past in the present is a classical philosophical topic that continues to inspire philosophers. Nowadays, due to new empirical discoveries and to new social challenges, philosophy of memory is thriving for at least two reasons. On the one hand, new ideas in cognitive psychology and in the neurosciences open the opportunity to think again about the distinction between memory and imagination, the requirement of truth in memory and the relationship between memory and knowledge. On the other hand, new political phenomena from the 20 th century made it necessary to discuss the relationship between forgetfulness and responsibility—and the duty to remember. We invite submissions on any aspect of the current philosophical debate on memory.

Topics may include (but are not limited to) the following:
– The metaphysics of memory
– Memory, time, and persons
– Epistemological issues regarding memory
– Memories and mental content
– Varieties of remembering
– Interdisciplinarity and methodology in the study of memory
– Collective memory
– Construction and reconstruction in remembering
– The phenomenology of memory
– Situated, embedded, and extended memory

Contributions from philosophers (working in any are of philosophy) and empirical researchers (psychologists, neuroscientists etc.) are most welcome.

Admitted languages: English, French, Portuguese, Spanish.
