In this paper, Dr. Theodore Jacobs offers a contemporary perspective on the place of memory in psychoanalytic theory and treatment and reviews current psychoanalytic controversies over memory. The presentation considers the ways in which the recovery of declarative memories aids the analytic process. Clinical material is used to demonstrate how one can work therapeutically with the explicit memory system.
