An article titled “A Good Forgetting” by Professor of Philosophy Marianne Janack was published online on June 4 in Aeon Magazine. In the article, Janack discussed the pros and cons of both remembering and forgetting, and the influence of emotion and other factors on how the brain processes memories.

Janack concludes, “Remembering truly and forgetting well are questions not just about the anatomy and electrochemistry of the brain, but about what kinds of animals we are, who think that the questions of memory, truthfulness and happiness are themselves important.”
