Place and the self: an autobiographical memory synthesis
University of Gävle, Faculty of Health and Occupational Studies, Department of Social Work and Psychology.
2014 (English)In: Philosophical Psychology, ISSN 0951-5089, E-ISSN 1465-394X, Vol. 27, no 2, 164-192 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In this article, I argue that the relationship between place and self can be accounted for by recent theoretical work on autobiographical memory. The link between place and self is conceptualized as a transitory mental representation that emerges as a place of mine (personal autobiographical experience) from a place (declarative knowledge). The function of place of mine is to guide personal memory and self-knowing consciousness of periods of our lives. I combine inquiries of memory, self, and place in a triadic relationship, a synthesis, suggesting a conceptual model for the phenomenon of place-related self as a sub-system of the self. This is formed by a causal progression from a physical place across time via emotional and cognitive bonds, components of the autobiographical information grounding the self, apportioned across declarative memory. Finally, using the methods of factor analysis and structural equation modeling, I show that the proposed model accounts for previous and new data on place-related identity.
