(p.28) 3 Sensory Memories and Recollective Images
Perceptual Imagination and Perceptual Memory

Dominic Gregory

Oxford University Press

‘Sensory memories’ revolve around sensory mental images that seem to us to correspond to how things were on specific occasions during our own lives. Many of our sensory memories seem to reflect the ways that things once were for us in the course of sensory experiences that we ourselves underwent. But our sensory memories seem sometimes to have a less subjective cast, as some of them seem simply to capture what the world was once like. This chapter develops an account of the representational functions of sensory mental imagery in sensory memories that accounts for both of those different sorts of cases, and which also meets a range of additional constraints.

Keywords:   memory, recollection, episodic memory, mental imagery, appearances, visual imagery, observer memories, pictures
