Eng. 100 – Sum. 34 (b) A. Elshimi Spr. ‘97 Adapted: G. Elshimi Spr. ‘98 DIRECTIONS: In a maximum of 120 words, explain the differences between the various types of ‘remembering’ mentioned in the passage. Remembering All learning implies retaining, for if nothing were left over from previous experience, nothing would be learned. We think and reason largely with remembered facts; the very continuity of our self-perceptions depends upon the continuity of our memories. We are able to deal with the concept of time as no other animal can, relating the present to the past and making predictions about the future, because of the strength, flexibility, and availability of our memories. One way of remembering is to recollect or redintegrate an event and the circumstances surrounding it, as when you remember going with a date to your first dance. The word recollect is from ordinary vocabulary; redintegrate is a technical word meaning to reintegrate or to reestablish an earlier experience on the basis of partial cues. For example, you redintegrate that first dance only if something “reminds” you of it.
