Praise

Individual and Collective Memory Consolidation constitutes… a clear and well-structured model of memory formation that bridges the gap between individual and collective memory studies…. Because of its clarity, erudition, and constant use of examples, it is apt and very informative for a general public interested in memory issues.—Metapsychology

What this book does, and does very well, is establish a firm and consistent analogy between individual and collective memory consolidation…. The cognitive scientist’s analytical insights into personal memory formation prove applicable at the group level, while cultural theorists’ more intuitive work in collective memory can, in turn, offer a vocabulary and model for describing brain states. The four authors… set themselves a herculean task in aiming to delineate a full-fledged analogy between these two kinds of memory, and they have more than met their own demands…. This is not only a compelling volume on memory, it is also a model of what interdisciplinary scholarship can be.
