The Concept of Memory
This chapter gives an overview over taxonomies of memory and argues that the standard philosopher's tripartite classification — propositional, experiential, practical memory — is problematic. A new taxonomy is introduced whereupon kinds of memories are classified in terms of the grammatical objects of the verb “to remember”. Given the new taxonomy, there are four main kinds of memory: object‐, property‐, event‐, and propositional memory. This chapter explains and justifies methodological externalism about memory and present preliminary analyses of extroversive and introversive memory.
