Remembering Reconsidered, the new ecologically-oriented study of memory, makes contact with more traditional approaches. The problems considered by the authors include memory for randomly selected daily events, for folk ballads, for early childhood experiences, for thoughts, for events known secondhand, for knowledge acquired years before and subjected to "reminding" in the laboratory, and for a variety of stimuli presented with theoretical questions in mind. The theme unifying the contributions, which is developed by the editors in their separate introductory chapters, is concerned with the adaptive significance of memory in daily life together with careful analysis of the variables on which it depends.

Industry Reviews

Science 'Remembering Reconsidered, shows how the ecological approach is significantly reshaping our ideas about the psychology of memory.' Contemporary Psychology 'The contributions to Remembering Reconsidered are of uniformly high quality and contain a wealth of new facts about manifestations of memory in various real-world contexts.'
