Abstract

<i>Constructing the Self </i>analyzes the narrative conception of self, filling a serious gap in philosophy and grounding discussion in other disciplines. It answers the questions: <br /> • What are the connections between our interpretations, selfhood, and conscious phenomenal experience?<br /><br /><br /><br /> • Why do we believe that our interpretations of our life-defining events are narrative in nature?<br /><br /><br /><br /> • From the myriad of thoughts, actions, and emotions which constitute our experiences, how do we choose what is interpretively important, the tiny subset that composes the self?<br /><br /><br /><br />By synthesizing the different approaches to understanding the self from philosophy of mind, developmental psychology, psychopathology, and cognitive science, this monograph gives us deeper insight into what being minded, being a person, and having a self are, as well as clarifies the difference and relation between conscious and unconscious mental states and normal and abnormal minds. The explication also affords new perspectives on human development and human emotion. (Series A)
