Self, society, and culture.
2006 (English)In: Memory and Society: Psychological Perspectives, Psychology Press, Hove, UK , 2006, 5-8 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter introduces the main concepts that are dealt with in this section of the book. One common theme in the four chapters Qi Wang and Martin A. Conway, Susan Joslyn and Jonathan W. Schooler, D. Stephen Lindsay and J Don Read, and Kathy Pedzek is autobiographical memory. The four chapters also converge on the notion that memory of the past is based on how the individual conceives of the present, and that this conceptualization of the present is built up in a narrative way throughout life – in much the same way that a society or a culture is built up by oral or written narrative in that society.
