Abstract

The aim of this volume is to discuss recent research into self-experience and its disorders,and to contribute to a better integration of the different empirical and conceptual perspectives. Among the topics discussed are questions like &#8216;What is a self?,&#8217; &#8216;What is the relation between the self-givenness of consciousness and the givenness of the conscious self?&#8217;,&#8216;How should we understand the self-disorders encountered in schizophrenia?&#8217; and &#8216;What general insights into the nature of the self can pathological phenomena provide us with?&#8217; Most of the contributions are characterized by a distinct phenomenological approach.<br />The chapters by Butterworth, Strawson, Zahavi, and Marbach are general in nature and address different psychological and philosophical aspects of what it means to be a self. Next Eilan, Parnas, and Sass turn to schizophrenia and ask both how we should approach and understand this disorder, and, more specifically,what we can learn about the nature of selfhood and existence from psychopathology. The chapters by Blakemore and Gallagher present a defense and a criticism of the so-called model of self-monitoring, respectively. The final three chapters by Cutting, Stanghellini, Schwartz and Wiggins represent anthropologically oriented attempts to situate pathologies of self-experience.<br />(Series B)
