Philosophy In Transit



In the third in a new series of short, provoking books of original philosophy, acclaimed thinker Barry Dainton takes us through the nature of Self

When you think 'What am I?', what's actually doing the thinking? Is it a soul, or are 'you' just a collection of nerve-endings and narratives? Here, acclaimed thinker Barry Dainton takes us through the nature of Self and its relation to the rest of reality. Starting his journey with Descartes' claim that we are non-physical beings, and Locke's view that a person is self-conscious matter, Dainton explores how today's rapid technological, scientific and cultural changes are affecting our understanding of self.
