Summary:
'This is an impressive book about the self that fills a deep void in our conceptulations of ourselves. Bringing together, philosophy, neuroscience, and computational modelling, Beni develops a structural realist account of self that seems highly natural and plausible in metaphysical, conceptual, and empirical terms. A wonderful book that will set new directions and standards on the eternal debate of self.' -- Georg  Read more...

Bringing together, philosophy, neuroscience, and computational modelling, Beni develops a structural realist account of self that seems highly natural and plausible in metaphysical, conceptual, and empirical terms. A wonderful book that will set new directions and standards on the eternal debate of self.' -- Georg Northoff, EJLB-CIHR Michael Smith Chair in Neurosciences and Mental Health, University of Ottowa Institute of Mental health Research, Canada This book presents a unified account of the self, based on a network of knowledge sourced from several scientific accounts of selfhood. Beni constructs his ontological account of the self from the common structure that underpins the theoretical diversity that is manifested in rival and sometimes incompatible scientific accounts of the self and its aspects. The enterprise is inspired by recent structural realist theories in the philosophy of science, specifying the basic structure of the self, and explaining how representational, phenomenal, and social aspects of the self are embodied within this structure."@en ;
