Relational Remembering is a compelling, persuasively argued book that brings a welcome philosophical sophistication to recent debates in the so-called 'memory wars.' Sue Campbell argues that our dependence on others in the construction of narratives of our past, far from undermining the reliability of our memories, is necessary for 'good remembering.' Philosophers, cognitive psychologists, therapists, feminist theorists-indeed, everyone interested in the politics of memory-will benefit from reading this fascinating study of memory and identity. -- Susan J. Brison, author of Aftermath: Violence and the Remaking of a Self
In Relational Remembering Sue Campbell extends to the contentious terrain of the 'memory wars' the subtle and lucid account of subjectivity that she articulated in Interpreting the Personal. This extraordinary achievement shows that seeking the truth about what we feel or about what we seem to remember requires, not abstraction from, but politically informed attention to the social contexts in which those feelings and memories take shape. -- Naomi Scheman, professor of philosophy and women's studies, University of Minnesota
This is an especially useful text for those interested in philosophically interdisciplinary projects. . . . Relational Remembering presents an important feminist voice in the arguments over the unity and stability of memory. Campbell's text is critical, important, and quite provocative. Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
An engaging and intelligent book, Relational Remembering is a probing analysis of the false memory movement written by an insightful and sophisticated philosopher of science. Of interest to a wide audience, Relational Remembering should be required reading by all those who claim-or would like to claim-expertise on memory for trauma. -- Jennifer J. Freyd, author of Betrayal Trauma: The Logic of Forgetting Childhood Abuse
