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.

Originally published: 1988.;Transferred to digital printing.;Includes bibliographical references and index.

Review Quotes:

"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; they also provide provocative discussions of methodological, conceptual, and theoretical issues." Science

..."provides a representative look at memory research in the mid-1980s by its examination of recurring themes and concepts and of both traditional and ecological data collection procedures. Consequently the book could easily be used within a seminar-based course....The goal of the conference and the book was to stimulate a reconsideration of remembering. Whereas a book cannot substitute for conference attendance, it meets this goal well." Applied Cognitive Psychology
