About the memory in philosophy

P. 50-60.

Bibl.: 6 ref.

Abstract: Our research is devoted to philosophical understanding of human memory, which is still wrongly attributed to the study of psychology and which should be adequately removed due to the need of solving a number of urgent problems of the modern human studies.

The article describes the Hegel’s theory of memory, contained in his system work «Philosophy of mind», where the German thinker firstly considered the «Memoirs», under which the modification of «Force of Imagination» is located and only then disclosed the content «Memory» as such, which includes «memory holding the name», «reproducing memory» and «mechanical memory». The last triadic structure of «memory as such» leads straight and eventually puts it into «thinking» as the highest form of «theory of the spirit» that emanates from the depths of «contemplation» and «ideas». The article concludes that, despite the panratsionalizm, Hegel's theory of memory is largely unmatched to this day. This theory allows to understand that human memory is omnipresent, it is co-present directly in the phenomenological, cognitive and mental forms of spirit, and indirectly – in all the formations of human spiritual culture. Hegel's theory of memory is also able to serve as an efficient research prism to what preceded and followed it in the case of studying the issues discussed in this article.
