Metaphors of the human mind, if not of human memory

A finely illustrated ‘history of ideas about the mind’ this certainly is, though more a book concerned with the metaphors, than with the essence, of human memory per se. What it does superbly well, but not explicitly, is to tell us why this topic is important to the philosophy of mind and consciousness.
