There are two constraints that are often taken to be essential features of ordinary use of ‘remembering’ and ‘having a memory’: the factivity constraint (i.e., that one can be truly said to ‘remember’ some event only if that person originally experienced or observed that event) and the strong previous awareness condition (i.e., that remembering presupposes identity between the person who remembers an event and the person who originally experienced that event). This chapter reports studies suggesting that neither the factivity constraint nor the strong previous awareness condition is a necessary part of ordinary use of ‘remembering’ and ‘having a memory’.

Keywords:   memory, quasi-memory, factivity, awareness, remembering, personal identity
