JARI KAUKUA & TOMAS EKENBERG (Eds.)
Subjectivity and Selfhood in Medieval and Early Modern Philosophy, Springer 2016.
This book is a collection of studies on topics related to subjectivity and selfhood in medieval and early modern philosophy. The contributions approach the theme from a number of angles varying from cognitive and moral psychology to metaphysics and epistemology. The questions addressed include the ethical problems of the location of one’s true self and the proper distribution of labour between desire, passion and reason, and the psychological tasks of accounting for subjective experience and self-knowledge and determining different types of self-awareness.
