Abstract: 

The history of the concept of consciousness begins with the study of Locke, in which this concept is introduced and explained in connection with the work of memory. The purpose of this paper is an analysis of the initial binding of consciousness, reflection, and memory in the conception of Locke. The general conclusion is that Locke differs the memory and the consciousness, but just the memory determines the specificity of the concept of consciousness and subjectivity, because it defines the autonomy of the understanding and the activity on the ideas of perception.
