Podcast: The Nature of Memory – Perspectives from Art, History and Neuroscience

Our ability to recall the past is a fundamental feature of what makes us human. While neuroscience has advanced our understanding of memory, how do these insights relate to memory as understood in the classics, literature, and art? A panel event exploring these ideas was hosted by the Forum for European Philosophy at the London School of Economics in September 2015, and is now available online.
