This part presents four chapters on the concept of forgetting. The first chapter analyzes the term “forgetting”. The second discusses the impact of misinformation on the ability to remember previous event details. The third considers whether forgetting is a useful concept in the science of memory. It argues that it is not an especially useful in terms of what it denotes, but that what it connotes needs to be kept. The fourth presents a synthesis of the chapters in this part.
