Jonah Lehrer is a dynamic young thinker, combining the powers of philosophy and academic literature perspectives. His informative speaking style is engaging, inviting the audience to reflect on their own behaviors and positions within relationships. This interesting speech explores the act of memory.

Lehrer argues that remembering is a misinterpreted process, explaining that every time a memory is recalled it is rewritten. Upon recalling a moment in time, the mind stresses a different aspect of the memory. The implications of this could have a drastic effect on legal matters. In the past, traumatic memories were thought to have been imprinted permanently with concrete, unchanging details. However, even these are subject to change. Memories are constantly being reconstructed and rebuilt by the process of remembering.
