Description

This study explores the inner world of a rare human phenomenon-a man who was endowed with virtually limitless powers of memory. From his intimate knowledge of S., the mnemonist, gained from conversations and testing over a period of almost thirty years, A. R. Luria is able to reveal in rich detail not only the obvious strengths of S.'s astonishing memory but also his surprising weaknesses: his crippling inability to forget, his pattern of reacting passively to life, and his uniquely handicapped personality.

About Author

A. R. Luria was Professor of Psychology at Lomonosov Moscow State University. Jerome Bruner was University Professor at New York University.
