Two treatises on memory which have come down to us from antiquity are Aristotlea€™s 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 a€œmodesta€ 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 a€œphantasiaa€ (representation) to explain memory.The Handbook of Platonism. ... Platonis Opera. Tomus I. Oxford. Frede, D. 1997. Platon, Philebos.
