Self Expressions by Owen J. Flanagan

Book Description

Continuing the old philosophical project of reconciling a scientific view of ourselves with the view of ourselves as agents of free will and meaning, but bringing to this project the latest insights of neuroscience, cognitive science, and psychiatry, Flanagan's collection of essays explores topics such as a scientific explanation of consciousness, the moral socialization of children, and the nature and issues of psychological phenomena such as multiple personality disorder and false memory syndrome.

Books By Author Owen J. Flanagan

Really Hard Problem by Owen J. Flanagan Really Hard Problem, Paperback (March 2009)

A noted philosopher proposes a naturalistic (rather than supernaturalistic) way to solve the "really hard problem": how to live in a meaningful way--how to live a life that really matters--even as a finite material being living in a material world.

Narrative and Consciousness by Owen J. Flanagan Narrative and Consciousness, Paperback (July 2003)

The evocation of narrative as a way to understand the content of consciousness has sparked truly interdisciplinary work among psychologists, philosophers and literary critics. The research presented in this volume should appeal to the general reader and researchers enmeshed in these problems.

Problem of the Soul by Owen J. Flanagan Problem of the Soul, Paperback (June 2003)

A reconciliation of two conflicting visions of what a person is--one embedded in our humanistic traditions, the other advanced by mind science--from one of the most influential philosophers of our time

Dreaming Souls by Owen J. Flanagan Dreaming Souls, Paperback (May 2001)

In this text, the author provides both an accessible survey of the latest research on sleep and dreams and a theory about the nature and function of dreaming. Flanagan argues that while sleep has a clear biological function and adaptive value, dreams are merely side effects.
