The concept of Rilkean memory is explained. Rilkean memory comes in two forms: embodied and affective. In their embodied form, Rilkean memories consist in behavioral and bodily dispositions. In their affective form, Rilkean memories consist in feelings, moods or sensations. A Rilkean memory comes into existence when a standard episodic memory breaks down: the act of remembering lives on in Rilkean form, even though the content of the memory has been lost. Rilkean memory is categorized as a form of involuntary, minimally autobiographical memory that is neither procedural nor declarative, neither semantic nor episodic, neither explicit nor implicit, and not Freudian.
