About Book

Book Description
While memory is one of the most fascinating faculties of consciousness, it is also one of the most mysterious. Is it memory--our own marvelous personal computer or data base--that brings us the intense feelings prompted by a certain object or situation?
Drawing on an expansive array of sources, from microbiology to cosmology, Ovid to Proust, Egyptology to the cinema, Philip Kuberski leads us on a brave and beguiling exploration of memory. He enables us to see it as a worldly process in which individuals both remember and are remembered, all in a network of associations that join our bodies, personal and cultural myths, and aesthetic and literary experiences. His essays will provide a tantalizing and thoughtful read for those interested in literature, psychology, biology, anthropology, and philosophy.

From the Inside Flap
"Held together by a specific vision of memory, these essays put together sources that normally do not come into contact. I like this book a lot."--David B. Morris, author of The Culture of Pain

"Thought-provoking and even moving. . . . Superior in terms of its poetic acuteness and its range."--Jonathan Boyarin, author of Polish Jews in Paris: The Ethnography of Memory
