Book: The Man Who Wasn’t There: Investigations into the Strange New Science of the Self

I stumbled across this interview and found it completely fascinating.  It’s something that I’ve thought a lot about – out of necessity – since my illness causes fundamental disruptions to my sense of ‘self’.  I often say that that I use the pronoun ‘I’ only out of convenience.  It really doesn’t have much meaning for me.  Rather than being able to take it for granted, as I imagine most people do, I have a kind of methodically constructed definition of what ‘I’ means.  It helps but it’s not a replacement for the real thing.

I’ll write more about this when I’ve read the book.

In the meantime, this interview with the author of the book is really worth reading.
