Two treatises on memory which have come down to us from antiquity are Aristotleas On memory and recollectionand Plotinusa On perception and memory (IV 6); the latter also wrote at length about memory in his Problems connected with the soul (IV 3-4, esp. 3.25-4.6). Both authors treat memoryas a amodesta faculty:they assume the existence of a persistent subject to whom memory belongs; and basic cognitive capacities are assumed on which memory depends. In particular, both theories use aphantasiaa (representation) to explain memory.The Handbook of Platonism. ... Platonis Opera. Tomus I. Oxford. Frede, D. 1997. Platon, Philebos.
