Selfhood and Recognition : Melanesian and Western Accounts of Relationality, Hardback Book

Selfhood and Recognition : Melanesian and Western Accounts of Relationality Hardback

Part of the Person, Space and Memory in the Contemporary Pacific series


The disciplines of philosophy and cultural anthropology have one thing in common: human behavior.

Yet surprisingly, dialogue between the two fields has remained largely silent until now.

Selfhood and Recognition combines philosophical and cultural anthropological accounts of the perception of individual action, exploring the processes through which a person recognizes the self and the other.

Touching on humanity as porous, fractal, dividual, and relational, the author sheds new light on the nature of selfhood, recognition, relationality, and human life.
