On simulationist approaches to objectual memory.
Episodic memory enables us to remember particular events from our past through conscious imagery. Yet there are overlooked instances of imagistic remembering which are not event-directed and instead concern objects. The EU-funded MEMOBJECT project will study what it calls ‘objectual memory’ by drawing on and examining simulationist ideas. It will determine what objectual remembering consists of and what implications this has for understanding the content, imagery, and structure of remembering more generally.
