Abstract

Mahr and Csibra make a compelling case for a communicative function of episodic remembering, but a less compelling case that this is its primary function. Questions arise on whether confirming their predictions would support their account sufficiently, on the communicative function of preserving rich nonbelieved memories, and on the epistemic benefits of developing false memories via the acceptance of misinformation.
