The capacity to represent and think about time is one of the most fundamental and least understood aspects of human cognition and consciousness. This book throws light on central issues in the study of the mind by uniting psychological and philosophical approaches dealing with the connection between temporal representation and memory. Fifteen specially written essays by leading psychologists and philosophers investigate the way in which time is represented in memory, and the role memory plays in our ability to reason about time. They offer insights into current theories of memory processes and of the mechanisms and cognitive abilities underlying temporal judgements, and draw out fundamental issues concerning the phenomenology and epistemology of memory and our understanding of time. The chapters are arranged into four sections, each focused on one area of research: keeping track of time and temporal representation; memory, awareness and the past; memory and experience; and knowledge and the past - the epistemology and metaphysics of time.
