  1. Causation and Mnemonic Roles: On Fernández’s Functionalism.Nikola Andonovski - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:139-153.
    Debates about causation have dominated recent philosophy of memory. While causal theorists have argued that an appropriate causal connection to a past experience is necessary for remembering, their opponents have argued that this necessity condition needs to be relaxed. Recently, Jordi Fernández has attempted to provide such a relaxation. On his functionalist theory of remembering, a given state need not be caused by a past experience to qualify as a memory; it only has to realize the relevant functional role in (...)

  2. Fernández, J. (2019). Memory: A Self-Referential Account. Oxford University Press.Juan Fernándo Álvarez Céspedes - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:237-243.
    Fernández’ most recent book constitutes an articulated development of several philosophical considerations on memory displayed in previous, and forthcoming publications. The result of such articulated development ends up being a consistent account that provides an innovative and thought-provoking perspective on episodic remembering. This volume not only gathers and articulates the author’s previous ideas, but also provides new reflections, and objections that encompasses four significant domains in the philosophy of memory. In the first part of the book, Fernández offers an account (...)

  3. Defending Functionalism and Self-Reference in Memory.Jordi Fernández - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:223-236.
    In recent work, Sarah Robins, Gerardo Viera and Steven James have provided some insightful objections to the ideas offered in my book, Memory: A Self-Referential Account. In this paper, I put forward some responses to those objections. Robins challenges the idea that being a memory could be a matter of having a particular functional role within the subject’s cognitive economy. Viera challenges the idea that the content of a memory could explain some of its phenomenological properties. And James challenges the (...)

  4. Immunity to Error Through Misidentification and the Functionalist, Self-Reflexive Account of Episodic Memory.Steven James - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:189-200.
    Fernández offers an account of the nature of episodic memory that marries two core ideas: role-functionalism about episodic memory, and self-reflexive mnemonic content. One payoff of this view is that episodic memory judgments are immune to error through misidentification. Fernández takes this to reveal something important about the nature of one’s self-awareness in memory and our first-person conception of ourselves. However, once one sees why such judgments are immune in this way, according to the proposed account, the fact that they (...)

  5. No Maps for These Territories: Exploring Philosophy Through Photography.Alun Kirby - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:47-71.
    I begin by examining perception of photographs from two directions: what we think photographs are, and the aspects of mind involved when viewing photographs. Traditional photographs are shown to be mnemonic tools, and memory identified as a key part of the process by which photographs are fully perceived. Second, I describe the metamorphogram; a non-traditional photograph which fits specific, author-defined criteria for being memory. The metamorphogram is shown to be analogous to a composite of all an individual’s episodic memories. Finally, (...)

  6. Memory and Perception, Insights at the Interface: Editors’ Introduction.Christopher McCarroll, Kourken Michaelian & Santiago Arango Muñoz - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:5-19.
    The recent development of specialized research fields in philosophy of memory and philosophy of perception invites a dialogue about the relationship between these mental capacities. Following a brief review of some of the key issues that can be raised at the interface of memory and perception, this introduction provides an overview of the contributions to the special issue, and outlines possible directions for further research.

  7. Descartes y la memoria intelectual.Diego Díaz Quiroz - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:123-138.
    En el presente artículo se investiga la doctrina de la memoria intelectual en Descartes. En sus escritos, Descartes no solamente reconoció una memoria corporal, explicable en términos puramente fisiológicos, sino también una memoria intelectual o espiritual. En el presente artículo, se investiga si Descartes postuló una memoria intelectual por motivos teológicos o por motivos filosóficos. A partir del análisis de ciertos textos específicos en los cuales Descartes explica con relativo detalle en qué consiste la memoria intelectual, se intentará mostrar que (...)

  8. The Failures of Functionalism.Sarah Robins - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:201-222.
    In Memory: A Self-Referential Account, Fernández offers a functionalist account of the metaphysics of memory, which is portrayed as presenting significant advantages over causal and narrative theories of memory. In this paper, I present a series of challenges for Fernández’s functionalism. There are issues with both the particulars of the account and the use of functionalism more generally. First, in characterizing the mnemonic role of episodic remembering, Fernández fails to make clear how the mental image type that plays this role (...)

  9. What Makes a Mental State Feel Like a Memory: Feelings of Pastness and Presence.Melanie Rosen & Michael Barkasi - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:95-122.
    The intuitive view that memories are characterized by a feeling of pastness, perceptions by a feeling of presence, while imagination lacks either faces challenges from two sides. Some researchers complain that the “feeling of pastness” is either unclear, irrelevant or isn’t a real feature. Others point out that there are cases of memory without the feeling of pastness, perception without presence, and other cross-cutting cases. Here we argue that the feeling of pastness is indeed a real, useful feature, and although (...)

  10. Attitudes and the (Dis)Continuity Between Memory and Imagination.André Sant'Anna - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:73-93.
    The current dispute between causalists and simulationists in philosophy of memory has led to opposing attempts to characterize the relationship between memory and imagination. In a recent overview of this debate, Perrin and Michaelian have suggested that the dispute over the continuity between memory and imagination boils down to the question of whether a causal connection to a past event is necessary for remembering. By developing an argument based on an analogy to perception, I argue that this dispute should instead (...)

  11. The Sense of Mineness of Our Memories: Problems of the Endorsement Model.Marina Trakas - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:155-172.
    What does it take for a subject to experience a personal memory as being her own? According to Fernández’ model of endorsement, this particular phenomenal quality of our memories, their “sense of mineness”, can be explained in terms of the experience of the mnemonic content as veridical. In this article, I criticize this model for two reasons: the evidence that is used by Fernández to ground his theoretical proposal is dubious; and more importantly, the endorsement model does not accommodate many (...)

  12. Memoria y percepción en la entrevista autobiográfica: una simulación episódica que se adapta en tiempo real al contexto.Carlos Alberto Guerrero Velázquez - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:21-45.
    Normalmente se piensa en la percepción y la memoria como dos capacidades independientes, creyendo que la primera solo tiene influencia sobre la segunda durante la codificación. En las entrevistas autobiográficas de historia oral y memoria histórica, los entrevistados seleccionan, adaptan y completan sus recuerdos para crear diferentes versiones de ellos. En este artículo se argumenta que lo anterior es consecuencia de la naturaleza simulativa de la memoria episódica, y del empleo por los entrevistados de información perceptiva para generar y adaptar (...)

  13. Feeling the Past: Beyond Causal Content.Gerardo Viera - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 64:173-188.
    Memories often come with a feeling of pastness. The events we remember strike us as having occurred in our past. What accounts for this feeling of pastness? In his recent book, Memory: A self-referential account, Jordi Fernández argues that the feeling of pastness cannot be grounded in an explicit representation of the pastness of the remembered event. Instead, he argues that the feeling of pastness is grounded in the self-referential causal content of memory. In this paper, I argue that this (...)

    Responsabilidad y compromiso cívico.María Dolores García-Arnaldos - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 63:151-167.
    Civic engagement favours integration and social cohesion, but the way in but how this happens and the role that responsibility represents in the process requires careful analysis. From Arendt’s critical comments on the link between citizenship and rights, Weil’s conception of obligations towards the human being, and Zambrano’s reflection about Europe, it is maintained that co-operation and not just obligations must be promoted. One possible way is to revalue the role of empathy in its important social function since it strengthens (...)

    Dialéctica del esclavo en Platón.Alfonso Flórez - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 63:5-23.
    La aceptación de la esclavitud es una de las cuestiones donde la Antigüedad muestra un mayor rezago en relación con el mundo contemporáneo; esto suele aducirse para criticar la filosofía griega. En este artículo se examina hasta qué punto el pensamiento de Platón en las Leyes puede caer bajo esta imputación o sustraerse a ella. Se plantea que en el autor se encuentra una dialéctica del esclavo, que consiste en mantener, por un lado, la función de la esclavitud dentro de (...)

    Beyond Instrumental Rationality. For a Critical Theory of Freedom.Jana Katharina Funk - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 63:91-108.
    This article will provide an illustration of Max Weber’s theory of rationalization with a specific impetus on its interdependency with the development of capitalism. Following Horkheimer, I shall critically draw on Weber to outline a theory of human freedom, showing that rationalization not only implies economic and social liberation but entails a totalizing tendency that invades all spheres of socio-political life including people’s mental infrastructure. This mental colonization can be framed as a process of substituting value rationality with instrumental rationality. (...)

    El Anti-Edipo y el feminismo marxista: elementos para una discusión.Facundo Nahuel Martín - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 63:129-149.
    Este artículo estudia afinidades no exploradas entre la teoría del capitalismo de El Anti-Edipo y algunas discusiones sobre la reproducción social en el marxismo feminista. Por un lado, el capitalismo, con su movimiento de decodificación de flujos, tiende a disolver a la familia bajo movimientos desterritorializados. Por el otro, supone una reterritorialización edípica en cuanto separa el parentesco de las relaciones de producción, fundando una escisión históricamente novedosa. La distinción entre axiomática y reterritorializaciones capitalistas, en este contexto, aparece como una (...)

    ¿Puede la verdad prescindir de artificios? De la retorización de la filosofía a la ontología de la veridicción en Michel Foucault.Julia Monge - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 63:109-128.
    This paper aims to analyze the alleged inversion of truth discourse ́s appraisal in Michel Foucault’s works between the early seventies and his last lectures of the eighties. We propose that, by reconstructing the contraposition between philosophical discourse and sophistical practice and the dispute between Socrates’s parrhesia and rhetoric presented in each moment, the question can be treated as the problem of truth discourse’s operation on the field of social practices. Considering the ethical and political stipulations and effects of both (...)

    What do the works that were discussed during the sessions of the “College of Sociology” tell us today? By examining the respective influences of Roger Caillois and Georges Bataille, this article aims to show that the dialogue that brought them together, and that would eventually separate them, is rooted in nineteenth-century philosophical debates. Considering a broader theoretical horizon as a framework for the College of Sociology, this article also aims to offer a reading of why such eclectic interests crossed paths (...)

    Moral y Derecho. Contradicciones conceptuales en el sistema filosófico de Fichte de los años de Jena.Lucas Damián Scarfia - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 63:47-69.
    The present article states that the development of Fichte’s philosophy of Right stands in contradiction with the way that he founded the metaphysical ground of his system: morality as I’s rational and practical search to overcome the check of reality and to unify with itself. Thus, the paper exposes the impossibility to reconcile two texts: Grundlage der gesamten Wissenschaftslehre and Grundlage des Naturrechts. In the latter, Fichte presents the Doctrine of Right and the State as mediums for the individual to (...)

    La formulación de los primeros principios en Física I 7 a la luz de la noción de generación.Claudia Marisa Seggiaro - 2021 - Estudios de Filosofía 63:25-46.
    En el presente trabajo nos interesa analizar cómo Aristóteles formula los principios de la física a partir de la noción de generación. Nuestra tesis es que Física I 7 es el “momento” de euporía que cierra un proceso que se inicia en 1-2 con la problematización acerca de la naturaleza y número de los principios. Para demostrar esto, dividiremos el trabajo en dos partes. En la primera intentaremos establecer por qué Aristóteles emprende esta investigación y cuál es el contexto argumentativo (...)
