What is recollective memory?

In David C. Rubin (ed.), Remembering Our Past: Studies in Autobiographical Memory. Cambridge University Press (1996)
The goal of this chapter is to describe recollective memory and give an account of some of the characteristics of this form of human memory. I take recollective memory to be the type of memory that occurs when an individual recalls a specific episode from their past experience. I start with this very loose definition because a large part of this chapter consists of an attempt to work out a more detailed and analytic description of this form of memory.
