Buffalo State WiP (Women in Philosophy) Public Lecture: “Interpreting Things Past”
Julie Kirsch, PhD, Department of Philosophy (D’Youville College; Buffalo, New York)
Abstract: "We value our memories because they shape the way that we think about ourselves and our moral relations with others. I explore the role that interpretation plays in the formation of our memories. I argue that interpretation can play a role in the formation of our memories without rendering them wholly fictitious and unreliable."
