    The phenomenology of remembering is an epistemic feeling
    with Kourken Michaelian, Sant' , and André Anna
    Frontiers in Psychology. forthcoming.
    This paper aims to provide a psychologically-informed philosophical account of the phenomenology of episodic remembering. The literature on epistemic or metacognitive feelings has grown considerably in recent years, and there are persuasive reasons, both conceptual and empirical, in favour of the view that the phenomenology of remembering—autonoetic consciousness, as Tulving influentially referred to it, or the feeling of pastness, as we will refer to it here—is an epistemic feeling, but few phi…Read more

    Editorial: Memory as Mental Time Travel
    Review of Philosophy and Psychology 11 (2): 223-232. 2020.
    Originally understood as memory for the “what”, the “when”, and the “where” of experienced past events, episodic memory has, in recent years, been redefined as a form of past-oriented mental time travel. Following a brief review of empirical research on memory as mental time travel, this introduction provides an overview of the contributions to the special issue, which explore the theoretical implications of that research.

    A default-free solution to the imperfective paradox
    Synthese 196 (1): 273-297. 2019.
    This article advances the first semantics that is neither for nor against a default implicational link between the progressive and perfective forms, when it comes to solving the imperfective paradox. Depending on the doxastic context of its use, we contend that the progressive form sometimes allows and sometimes does not allow the inference of the corresponding simple form. In other words, the preparatory phase of an event might or might not be believed to lead to its culmination. Indeed, the co…Read more

    Este artigo enfoca a questão da temporalidade no período intermediário de Wittgenstein. Primeiro, ele estabelece a evolução do tratamento que o filósofo dispensa à idéia “fenomenológica”, de origem empirista, de um presente da consciência incessantemente fluente: de início simplesmente adotada (em 1929) como uma descrição da experiência imediata, essa idéia é, em seguida, criticada em 1930-32 como a expressão de uma das tentações mais características do espírito filosófico. Depois, o artigo exam…Read more

    Although philosophers have explored memory since antiquity, recent years have seen the birth of philosophy of memory as a distinct field. This book—the first of its kind—charts emerging directions of research in the field. The book's nineteen newly-commissioned chapters develop novel theories of remembering and forgetting, analyze the phenomenology and content of memory, debate issues in the ethics and epistemology of remembering, and explore the relationship between memory and affectivity. Writ…Read more

    resumo Este artigo parte da constatação de que a análise jamesiana da consciência do tempo constituiu uma fonte comum fundamental das meditações husserlianas e wittgensteinianas relativas ao tempo, o specious present engendrando tanto o ursprüngliche Zeitfeld de Husserl quanto o fliehende Gegenwart do Wittgenstein de 1929. Em seguida, examino a possibilidade de apreender a articulação entre as concepções do tempo de Husserl e de Wittgenstein no nível de suas respectivas apropriações da análise d…Read more
  • L’ouvrage propose une analyse du phénomène du souvenir qui recourt non seulement aux auteurs classiques, mais également aux conceptions philosophiques les plus contemporaines et à la psychologie cognitive du souvenir. Dans cette perspective, il examine quatre problèmes soulevés par l’intentionnalité du souvenir. 1) Celui de son type, i.e. aussi bien de sa diversité interne entre souvenir épisodique et souvenir sémantique, que de sa spécificité par rapport à la perception et à l’imagination. 2) L…Read more

    The Episodicity of Memory: Current Trends and Issues in Philosophy and Psychology
    with S. Rousset
    Review of Philosophy and Psychology 5 (3): 291-312. 2014.
    Although episodic memory is a widely studied form of memory both in philosophy and psychology, it still raises many burning questions regarding its definition and even its acceptance. Over the last two decades, cross-disciplinary discussions between these two fields have increased as they tackle shared concerns, such as the phenomenology of recollection, and therefore allow for fruitful interaction. This editorial introduction aims to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date presentation of the ma…Read more

    La pensée de Ludwig Wittgenstein est animée, tout au long des années 1930 et 1940, par une méditation de la question du temps. C’est un de ses aspects les plus mal connus. Ce livre vise à restituer cette méditation dans sa force et sa singularité, afin d’établir la contribution qu’elle apporte à la tradition qui s’est consacrée à cette question majeure de la philosophie.Il montre d’abord comment la tentation d’accorder un privilège au présent constitue un élément essentiel du projet phénoménolog…Read more

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, I carry out an application of the debate between simulationism and theory theory to the issue of episodic memory. I first criticize the approach favored by the theory theory. Then I advance a simulationist conception of the relationship between the phenomenology of episodic memory and its specific kind of self-consciousness. On my view, subjectivity belongs to the very content of episodic memory, not as an element of its content, but as the perspective it gives to the co…Read more

    Le rôle sémantique de l’attente
    Philosophiques 39 (1): 213-237. 2012.
    Cet article opère une comparaison des théories de la proposition — entendue dans sa double dimension sémantique et gnoséologique — du Wittgenstein des Philosophische Bemerkungen et du Russell de The Analysis of Mind . Après avoir rappelé le statut sémantique nouveau que ces théories accordent au temps en intégrant le fait qu’un délai sépare, pour un grand nombre de nos énoncés, leur occurrence et leur vérification , il établit que la notion d’attente est chargée, chez Wittgenstein comme chez Rus…Read more
