This is a great work on memory. The author has considerable knowledge of both philosophical and psychological treatments. A rare find! I fully recommend this book to anyone who wants to see what could happen (and too often does not) when these two sibling disciplines (once conjoined -- but separated some 180 years ago for political rather than pedagogic reasons) share insights. One can only hope more will adopt Dr. Bernecker's model. It is the best hope for both disciplines.

Dr. Bernecker has done it again. This book is a wonderful romp through the analysis of factual memory and the issues that are crucial to it.

It reminds me of a song from my childhood. Well, not my childhood exactly, but rather a T.V. commercial from my childhood:
"Memory - all alone in the moonlight.
I can smile at the old days,
I was beautiful then.
I remember the time I knew what happiness was.
Let the memory live again."

And what I actually remember was snippets of a Broadway show which I never saw, but felt I had because of the 30 seconds of clips that I was given on Saturdays between bowls of Fruit Loops. I haven't actually heard the whole song, I have only 6 words from the song, sung repeatedly over and over again between episodes of the Justice League of America. Also it wasn't Fruit Loops, I just wish it had been. It was probably something like Honey Nut Cheerios which were "healthier" but which I was allowed to eat. I recall those tasting good also, but it might have just been my enjoyment of the song. Or the six words of the song, being sung by a person dressed up like a cat or a clown, or a clown cat. I remember what she looked like, but no one actually told me what she was.

The more I think about it, the more I'm haunted by images of the clown cat singing on a dark stage. I'm hungry.

Let this be a warning to you.
