PIECES OF LIGHT How the New Science of Memory Illuminates the Stories We Tell About Our Pasts

by | Read by Gildart Jackson

Philosophy & Religion • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

"Can you remember the first fish you ever caught?" In the author's view, memories are creatable rather than retrievable. His topics range from false memory to the way music is used in treating amnesia. Gildart Jackson narrates with an English accent and a professorial tone that shifts smoothly between the scientific information and the anecdotes about memory, including the author's own recollections of childhood. A discussion of age and memory includes the stories told by Fernyhough's grandmother and his memories of her final days. For these touching passages Jackson softens his voice to highlight their personal nature. Listeners seeking insight into their own recollections may learn from this work.
