      The book draws on phenomenology (Heidegger), gender studies (Beauvoir, Butler), and contemporary neuroscience. It surveys existing approaches to modern selfhood (Foucault, Charles Taylor) and proposes an alternative account by investigating late medieval mysticism, in particular texts written in Germany by Meister Eckhart and others. Any idea of going back to the pattern or world-view of traditional societies either primal or medieval or even early modern is doing violence to the historical nature and social becoming of human beings. and to interpret human history itself as the evolutionary or revolutionary enlargement of the human selfhood and its spiritual self.

        While the notion of a journey to selfhood has various religious and mytholog- ical roots, the ideal of becoming a self emerges most clearly in the nineteenth century. Earlier, philosophers had supposed the self to be some sort of spiritual substance or subject endowed with various faculties, chief among them being rationality. The meaning of selfhood has become an urgent question, largely in reaction to the radical individualism in which many modern Western notions of selfhood have been cast. The 11 contributors to Selves, People, and Persons aim to reshape fundamental ideas of the self in such varied fields as theology, biology, psychoanalysis and political philosophy.

[Zygmunt Bauman; Rein Raud] -- Contemporary understanding of human subjectivity has come a long way since the Cartesian 'thinking thing' or Freud's view of the self struggling with its unconscious. We no longer think of ourselves. This book is at once both fascinating and, in some ways at least, frustrating. argues that the modern self emerged both sooner and in different areas than practices that fostered a new, individualized sense of spiritual selfhood" (). While this is an important insight, there is a danger here of.

In his new book Moral Matters, Irish Catholic philosopher Mark Dooley presents a lucid appraisal of the ongoing calamity of liberal modernity, and a passionate and often moving account of the world of meaning that liberalism has so extensively eroded and threatens to completely destroy.

At the heart of Moral Matters is the idea of home; homebuilding and homecoming are Dooley’s chief motifs. Becoming a New Self addresses not only early modern Catholic notions of selfhood and subjecthood, but also subjugation and the place of agency and desire in early modern Catholic imaginations.

And since its focus is the early modern era and changes in theology, the book also contributes to the ongoing discussion about the beginning, legitimacy.Spiritual Shakespeares is the first book to explore the scope for reading Shakespeare spiritually in the light of contemporary theory and current world events.
