Aristotle on Memory: Second Edition

University of Chicago Press (2006)

Abstract
Richard Sorabji, a noted philosopher in his own right, here offers a new edition of his 1972 translation of _De Memoria_ here with commentary, summaries, and three essays comparing Aristotle’s accounts of memory and recollection. For this edition, Sorabji has also provided a substantial new introduction taking into account scholarly debates over the intervening thirty years, particularly those over the role of mental images in the imagination. “Sorabji has produced a first-class book on an important topic. All Aristotelians, and anyone with an interest in any aspect of memory, will be in his debt.”—Jonathan Barnes, _Isis _“Anyone concerned with Aristotle’s psychology, theory of mind, or rhetoric, anyone interested in mnemonic systems, and anyone trying to work out for himself a theory of memory, should read Aristotle’s treatise _On Memory_, with the comments by Richard Sorabji.”—_International Studies in Philosophy_ “Sorabji’s book is a sample of care, intelligence, and subtlety that the Anglo-Saxon philosophers do not hesitate to invest in such enterprises.... The notes seem to leave no detail, no textual difficulty unilluminated.”—_Revue de Métaphysique et de Morale _
