Metaphors of Memory by D. Draaisma

"Metaphors of Memory" explores the history and philosophy of memory and the metaphors used to describe it. The book delves into how memory has been compared to a variety of things such as a storehouse, a telephone exchange, a computer, and even a hologram. The author discusses the implications of these metaphors and how they influence our understanding of memory, while also investigating the relationship between memory, time, and identity.
