Alison Gopnik has spent her life exploring that both from a psychologist’s and philosopher’s perspective. She is Professor of Psychology and Affiliate Professor in Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley.

Early Memories

Our brain is a filter. Generally, we remember what's important, for example, some memories that have survived the decades.

My clients have found that strong early memories have implications for what they might do today: careerwise and personally, plus psychological issues they may still have to deal with.
