Temporal concepts and episodic memory: A response to Hoerl
UNSPECIFIED. (1999) Temporal concepts and episodic memory: A response to Hoerl. MIND & LANGUAGE, 14 (2). pp. 252-262. ISSN 0268-1064Full text not available from this repository.
Hoerl claims that episodic memory is necessary for a concept of the past, and that we should consider some severely amnesic patients as lacking such a concept. I question whether this description of such patients is plausible, and whether it helps us understand lack of insight in amnesia. I finish by arguing that Hoerl's analysis of what constitutes a concept of the past raises interesting developmental issues.
