Wax Tablets of the Mind explores the relationship between literacy, orality and memory in classical antiquity, not only from the point of view of antiquity, but also from that of modern cognitive psychology. Jocelyn Penny Small examines how ancient techniques for improving memory continued well into the era of print. This volume represents a timely insight into the topical areas of literacy and memory, and provides a controversial and challenging analysis of the cognitive processes and their modes of display and retrieval.
