Plural Self by John Rowan
Book Description'[This book's] fundamental thesis is a rather challenging one - the idea that the unified, singular "self", which we all take for granted we possess, does not exist...fascinating and important...I will certainly revisit the book...when you're ready for a challenge, this book is certainly worth dipping into' - Counselling News 'I thoroughly recommend this book. I found it challenging, provocative, exciting and full of delights. (It makes such a change to be told that ideal personality characteristics would include a Monty Pythonesque sense of humour and a tolerance of mind-altering drugs!) While reading it I often felt nourished and refreshed' - The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy With the emergence of postmodern thinking, the notion of a unified, singular 'self' appears increasingly problematic. Yet for many, postmodernism's proclamation of 'the death of the subject' is equally problematic.As a response to this dilemma, there has been a rise of interest in pluralistic models of the 'self' in which the person is conceptualized as a multiplicity of subpersonalities, as a plurality of existential possibilities or as a 'being' which is inextricably in-dialogue-with-others. Bringing together many disciplines, and with contributions from foremost writers on self-pluralism, The Plural Self overviews and critiques this emerging field. Drawing together theory, research and practice, the book expands on both the psychological and philosophical theories underlying and associated with self-pluralism, and presents empirical evidence in support of the self-pluralistic perspective, exploring its application within a clinical and therapeutic setting.
