Chapter Summary

This chapter is divided into two parts. The first part is on memory and recollection and the second part is on which of the parts in us it belongs. Memory is of the past; and nobody would claim to remember the present, when it is actually present. Memory is not produced simultaneously with the affection that is produced in the person. In general, one might say that the Latin medieval concepts of memory evolved through the schoolmen's efforts to interpret and harmonise the theories of different philosophical authorities, and that this produced new and interesting theories.
