Philosophers Index Abstract

    This chapter suggests that certain traditional ways of analyzing the self start off in situations that are abstract or detached from normal experience, and that the conclusions reached in such approaches are, as a result, inexact or mistaken. The chapter raises the question of whether there are more contextualized forms of self-consciousness1 than those usually appealed to in philosophical or psychological analyses, and whether they can be the basis for a more adequate theoretical approach to the self.
