Capacity to remember; what is remembered.
In all human judgements memory and
memories are presupposed and involved, since one can't even speak without
remembering a language.
Much could be said about memory, since quite a lot is known about the
weaknesses and strengths of human memory, but most of this belongs to
What is relevant for philosophy
is that memory is one of the human capacities
that are presupposed in all human
judgments. Other human capacities for which holds the same are
feeling and fantasy, and indeed apart from
presupposing these, another common presupposition that enters here, and that
seems to hold for everyone who is not diseased or insane is that
except in cases of extreme emotion
or when dreaming.
Note that the distinctions between these capacities seem to go by source or
subject: memory informs about one's past; sensation about one's environment;
feeling about one's body; and
fantasy about one's mind.
