Description


A groundbreaking work by one of the world's foremost psychologists that delves into the complex behavior of memory.

In this fascinating study, Daniel L. Schacter explores instances of what we would consider memory failure--absent-mindedness, transience, blocking, misattribution, suggestibility, bias, and persistence--and suggests instead that these miscues are actually indications that memory is functioning as designed. Drawing from vivid scientific research and creative literature, as well as high-profile events in which memory has figured significantly (Bill Clinton's grand jury testimony, for instance), The Seven Sins of Memory provides a more nuanced understanding of how memory and the mind influence each other and shape our lives.
