Contemporary research in personality, social psychology, and sociology has renewed an interest in the "self." This volume argues that the "self" may consist of multiple "selves" any of which may interact with each other in a dialogical fashion. The "self" is presented as a non-unitary embodiment that transcends the limits of individualism and rationalism. Beginning with a philosophic discussion of the "self," this volume discusses the decentralization of the "self" in narrative psychology, the retreat of the omniscient narrator in literary sciences, the genesis of self-knowledge in children, and the concept of modern society as a multiplicity of collective voices.
