Our faithfulness to the past: Reconstructing memory value

Philosophical Psychology 19 (3):361 – 380 (2006)
The reconstructive turn in memory theory challenges us to provide an account of successful remembering that is attentive to the ways in which we use memory, both individually and socially. I investigate conceptualizations of accuracy and integrity useful to memory theorists and argue that faithful recollection is often a complex epistemological/ethical achievement.
