Overview

Middleton and Brown (no affiliation given) attempt to overcome the spatial bias in psychological and sociological studies of memory by reconsidering some of the basic conceptual tools of memory research and the ways they affect our relationship to the past. They ground remembering and forgetting in the works of Bartlett, Halbwachs and Bergson. Arguing that remembering and forgetting are interdependent ways of actualizing experience, the authors seek to demonstrate that selfhood is the shifting intersection of experiences of which present consciousness is only the leading edge.
