Recollective memories (or ‘R-memories’) and sensory imaginations (or ‘S-imaginations’) characteristically correspond to our use of the distinct senses, and from the experiencing subject’s own point of view, S-imaginations and R-memories are phenomenologically rather similar. At the same time, however, R-memories and S-imaginations play very different roles in a subject’s mental life. How is this possible? How can subjects (rightly) treat those different kinds of mental episodes in relevantly different ways? This chapter is centred around the observation that R-memories (usually) have a characteristic relational property—they are ‘embedded’ in a context of relevant beliefs, on the basis of which a subject can tell a relevant story (or narrative)—which S-imaginations usually lack. With the help of this observation we can explain a subject’s ability to treat S-imaginations and R-memories in relevantly different ways.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Debus, Dorothea</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
