In this thesis I present an in depth analysis of a mental phenomenon widely neglected in current philosophical discussions : personal memories. Personal memory is the general term I use throughout this thesis to refer in a broad sense to all kinds of memories of our personal past. It is the aim of this thesis to analyse and determine with more precision the different memory phenomena that are at first sight united in referring to or including the rememberer in a way that is completely absent from the memory knowledge that we have about impersonal facts of the world.
