Times Higher Education Supplement Models of the Self should be of interest to all thinking human beings, but I suspect that, covering as it does such a wide range of disciplines, most readers will be content to sample the volume in accordance with their particular specialist concerns. For my part, I have found many of the contributions stimulating, and in places illuminating. Times Literary Supplement The book successfully spans a multidisciplinary mix of fields, from psychology and cognitive science through philosophy to mysticism, and some of these papers achieve a genuinely interdisciplinary exchange of ideas. Especially useful are the papers on topics such as psychiatry and Tibetan Buddhism, which may be overlooked in standard Western philosophy courses, but which illuminate the self by decomposing it. Louis Sass, for example, examines the pathological dissolution of the self in schizophrenia, and Jeremy Hayward takes us through the careful self- dissection of Buddhist meditation. Susan Blackmore We cannot understand consciousness without tackling the self and this book tackles it head-on. Michael Gazzaniga Gallagher and Shear have put together a fast paced yet savvy set of readings on the thorny problem of the self. It is a must read. Trends in Cognitive Sciences, June 2000 Models of the Self is a challenging and provocative book. It is not an easy read, but the insights and rewards are great. Marc Jeannerod The book is fully edited - the philosophical thread runs through the chapters. Contemporary Psychology, April 2001 The volume is unquestionably a tour de force ... it is consistently erudite.
