Description - Self Consciousness by Anthony Cohen

In Self Consciousness , Anthony Cohen establishes the importance of the individual, arguing that in order to appreciate the complexity of social formations we must take account of individuals awareness of themselves and their authorship of their own social contexts and conditions. Drawing comparatively on a wide range of ethnographic studies and areas of anthropology from around the world, he proposes that anthropological fields such as culture', society' and social relations' should be approached from the self upwards. He demonstrates how social and cultural forms and processes such as ritual symbolism, organisation, rhetoric, socialisation, marriage, naming, ethnicity and self and consciousnessre varied according to the needs of the creative self, and how emphasizing attention to the particular, the individual, and to self consciousness can both inform and discipline the larger picture.
