REMINISCENCE (from Lat. reminisci, to remember), the recognized translation of the Greek av6 tvno-es, which is used technically by Plato in his doctrine that the soul recovers knowledge of which it had direct intuition in a former incorporeal existence. The doctrine may be regarded as the poetical precursor of modern a priori theories of knowledge and of "race-memory" and the like. In common language "reminiscence" is synonymous with "recollection."
