Nostalgia

Synopsis: This week on “Learn Me Something,” Aaron and Rich delve into the topic of Nostalgia. Looking to the past with sentimentality isn’t always a negative thing, but at what point does living in the past create a problem for how we define the future?

Many researchers believe that the reminiscence bump reflects the strategies we use to retrieve key memories from our life. As Garry puts it: “I have a vast soup of experiences in my life – how do I wade through to try and find the most important ones?”

One theory is that that our culture provides a sort of blueprint that we use to determine which memories are important. We will tend to better recall experiences that are culturally-valued, and a lot of those events occur when we are children and young adults. This is the period when we graduate from school or university, work in our first jobs, and have our first romantic partners.
