Book Description Report this book

Richard Wolfgang Semon (22 August 1859, Berlin – 27 December 1918, Munich) was a German zoologist and evolutionary biologist, who believed in the inheritance of acquired characters and applied this to social evolution. Semon proposed psycho-physiological parallelism according to which every psychological state corresponds to alterations in the nerves. His ideas of the mneme (based on the Greek goddess, Mneme, the muse of memory) were developed upon early in the 20th century. The mneme represented the memory of an external-to-internal experience.
