Workshop at Université Grenoble Alpes, 2-3 December, 2021. Centre for Philosophy of Memory / Institute for Transcendental Philosophy and Phenomenology.
Remembering: Phenomenological and Analytic Approaches
2-3 December, 2021
Université Grenoble Alpes
This workshop, intended for early-career researchers, aims to initiate a dialogue between analytic philosophy of memory, a field that has undergone considerable expansion in recent years, and the tradition of phenomenological research on memory. Despite the very different terminologies employed in these two fields, they ask remarkably similar questions. What is memory? Which forms of memory can be differentiated? Is there such a thing as collective memory? What is the relationship between remembering and forgetting? What role does memory play with respect to the self and personal identity? What are the ethical implications of memory? There has so far been little dialogue between analytic and phenomenological approaches to memory, but, if the success of recent rapprochements between analytic and phenomenological approaches in other areas is any indication, such a dialogue has the potential to be highly fruitful. The workshop will constitute the first step in this direction.
Organizers: Kourken Michaelian, Denis Perrin, Inga Römer, André Sant’Anna, Alexander Schnell. The event is organized as a collaboration between the Centre for Philosophy of Memory in Grenoble and the Institute for Transcendental Philosophy and Phenomenology in Wuppertal.
