B)  Memory in the Primal Functioning of Consciousness:  Memory as the operational factor of association and continuity in the origin and course of experience; Memory in Imaginatio Creatrix; The thread of memory in deliberation and the continuity of the creative process

C)  Memory as Remembrance:  Retrieving "traces" of the past: origins, becoming, coincidences, reasons (origins of tradition, culture, history)

D)  Memory and the Temporalizing/Spacing Axis Constitutive of Reality:  Memory as projecting the associative links between the traces of the past and expectations of the future; Memory in selection, planning and the human titanic effort to accomplish; Fabulation of the "facts" and sense of history

                This Conference proposes a new research into the functioning of memory in the ontopoietic logos of life.
