Concluding Remarks

Show Summary Details


This short chapter summarizes the analyses of introversive and extroversive memory and spells out their wider ramifications. The philosophical analysis of memory can make an important contribution to the critical evaluation of the commonsensical criteria we use to assess the accuracy of our own and other people's memory reports. Moreover, the philosophical analysis of memory is able to provide a completely general test of when a memory report is accurate and when it is not.

Keywords: summary; wider ramifications; accuracy; memory reports; introversive memory; extroversive memory
