Ulric Neisser, Eugene Winograd

The issues thought-about by the authors embody reminiscence for randomly chosen each day occasions, for folks ballads, for early childhood experiences, for ideas, for occasions identified secondhand, for data acquired years earlier than and subjected to “reminding” within the laboratory, and for a wide range of stimuli offered with theoretical questions in thoughts. The theme unifying the contributions, which is developed by the editors of their separate introductory chapters, is anxious with the adaptive significance of reminiscence in each day life along with cautious evaluation of the variables on which it relies upon.
