Abstract

Although we can potentially narrate any specific event or recurring events in our lives, including acts of remembering themselves, only one special sort of memory - autobiographical reverie - has a strong claim for being indelibily narrative in nature. There is robust empirical and theoretical support for thinking that autobiographical remembering depends upon the mastery of socio-cultural narrative practices and the exercise of narrative skills. In getting clear about why autobiographical memory and narrativity may be inescapably bound together, a preparatory comparison with more purely embodied forms of remembering proves instructive.
