Reformatted and including new chapters, this revised edition covers the topic of human memory and includes the role of consciousness in learning and memory, previously omitted from the first publication due to a lack of agreement about the new area of research. The three additional chapters cover: the philosophy and empirical factors influencing the study of consciousness; implicit knowledge and learning; and the evidence for implicit memory and its relationship to the phenomenal experience of "remembering" and "knowing".
