Memento: A Philosophical Investigation

  • Phil Hutchinson
  • Rupert Read

Abstract

This paper offers a reading of Memento as a therapeutic dialogue, one purpose of which is to loosen the grip of both dualism (the ‘Cartesian’1 picture of mind) and behaviourism. We do this by illuminating aspects of the film with a reading of the opening of Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations (hereafter, PI).2
