By Douwe Draaisma,Verena Kiefer

Das Vergessen ist besser als sein Ruf
Das Standardwerk über den Nutzen und Nachteil des Vergessens für das Leben
Warum erinnern wir uns so schlecht an unsere Träume? was once passiert mit verdrängten Erinnerungen – wo bleiben sie? Warum ist die Vorstellung eines absoluten Gedächtnisses für uns so verführerisch, ja faszinierend? Warum gibt es Gedächtnistrainings, aber keine Vergessenstechnik?

Mit solchen und vielen anderen Fragen nähert sich der holländische Bestsellerautor Douwe Draaisma in Das Buch des Vergessens umfassend, erhellend und unterhaltsam dem interessantesten Aspekt der Gehirnforschung: dem Vergessen. Unser Gedächtnis, so Draaisma, ist wie ein unfolgsames sort: Woran wir uns erinnern, und woran nicht – darauf haben wir keinen Einfluss. Kein Wunder, dass es so schwer ist, die dahinterstehenden Mechanismen zu erkennen.
Douwe Draaisma lädt seine Leser ein zu einem Streifzug durch Psychologie, Philosophie und Gehirnforschung, die sich seit Jahrhunderten mit dem Vergessen befassen. Er erzählt von Schlaflabors und Traumprotokollen, von Gehirnoperationen und Patientenschicksalen, er beschäftigt sich mit den neusten Techniken der Traumatherapie genauso wie er seinen Blick auf die Pioniere der Gedächtnisforschung richtet.

Ein spannendes Buch, das vor allem eins klarmacht: Vergessen ist besser als sein Ruf.
