New OUP book series: Philosophy of Memory and Imagination

Published by Oxford University Press, the book series Philosophy of Memory and Imagination is open to monographs on all aspects of memory and imagination. Books included in the series may belong to the philosophy of memory, the philosophy of imagination, or both fields.

The philosophy of memory and the philosophy of imagination have developed in recent years into coherent, recognized fields of research, and an increasing number of researchers count themselves as specialists in these fields. Crucially, philosophers of memory increasingly recognize that they have as much to say to each other as they do to colleagues in the fields on which they draw, such as philosophy of mind, epistemology, and philosophy of psychology. The same is true of philosophers of imagination, and both fields have accordingly begun to develop their own infrastructures, as books, special issues, conferences, and workshops on all aspects of memory and imagination become regular occurrences. The series will contribute to this development by providing a critical piece of infrastructure and becoming the natural home for high-quality philosophical monographs on memory or imagination. It has, moreover, become clear to researchers working in both fields that memory and imagination interact in a number of important ways, and the series will also encourage increased contact between philosophers of memory and philosophers of imagination.

The series is edited by Amy Kind (Claremont McKenna College) and Kourken Michaelian (University of Otago). Kind and Michaelian will be supported by an advisory board of established experts in the philosophies of memory and imagination. The membership of the advisory board will be announced in the near future, as will the first books to be published in the series.

Colleagues interested in proposing books for inclusion in the series should contact Kind (for manuscripts primarily devoted to imagination) or Michaelian (for manuscripts primarily devoted to memory).
