This chapter examines the tendency to view future-oriented mental time travel (FMTT) as a unitary faculty that, despite task-driven surface variation, ultimately reduces to a common phenomenological state (supported primarily by episodic memory). The chapter reviews evidence that FMTT is neither unitary nor beholden to episodic memory: rather, it is varied both in its memorial underpinnings and in its experiential realization. The authors conclude that the phenomenological diversity characterizing FMTT is dependent not on the type of memory (i.e., episodic versus semantic memory) activated during task performance, but on the kind of subjective temporality associated with the memory in play.

Keywords:   Future, mental time travel, subjective temporality, memory, semantic memory, episodic memory
