memory becomes the stimulus-goal configuration, rather than isolated perceptual or conceptual processes. Entire events cannot be repeated but similar contexts and sets (goal orientations) often recur, and it in these instances that memory for prior conceptualizations can influence current thought and behaviour. Often, such prior conceptualizations are apprehended consciously and thus we can intentionally choose to exploit, or to avoid, the prior influence. More often, we believe, our views of the world are coloured covertly and we simply perceive the meaning of the event.

Reingold. We thank R. Hunt, L. Jacoby, B. Levine, M. Masson, N. Meiran, H. Roediger, and M. Wheeler for their comments on an earlier draft of this chapter.
