9781844096206: Who on Earth Are You?: A field Guide to Identifying and Knowing Yourself

When Nick Inman’s bank asked him to identify himself he realized he had an interesting problem. Who was he really? How did he know who he was? And how on earth could he prove it beyond doubt that the person inside his head was the same as the person outside, as detailed on his documentation?

Moving like a detective story, this book pieces together the formula or recipe for a complete human being, listing ingredients from the prosaic to the surprising.

Self-knowledge - even merely posing questions about our true nature - is an essential part of personal growth; but its more important than that. All knowledge depends on it: how can we know anything if we don’t know who is asking the questions and giving sense to reality? Can we be truly virtuous and empathetic if we don’t know where these feelings stem from?

En route to its destination, the book addresses some intriguing conundrums. Can science offer a complete description of an individual; without accepting the existence of mind, consciousness and spirit? Are we in danger of losing ourselves as we are taken over by our virtual identities? How does suffering shape us and equip us to help others to heal? Is technology (biometrics) the best way to decide between friend and foe? And what will be the future for the human soul when we allow machines to become people” too?

About the Author:

Nick Inman is a writer, a photographer, and a translator. He is the author, coauthor, and editor of more than 30 books, including Eyewitness Spain, The Optimist's Handbook, and the Road Less Traveled: Amazing Places Off the Tourist Trail.

Review:

This is a brilliant bit of detective work, applied not to a crime but to ones sense of identity, not a Who Done It but a Who Is Doing It. This fresh examination of what it means to have an identity in the 21st century is not an easy subject to explore, but Nick Inman takes this philosophical exploration into unexplored realms with an exposition of great clarity. The result is a fascinating guide to the inner self, to recognising and knowing who and what you are...--Bill Anderton"Pilgrims" (11/07/2013)

Who on Earth are You? is an interesting, informative and entertaining book. Beginning with a simple request from his bank, asking him to prove his identity, Nick Inman launches off into a quest to get to grips with who he is. Along the road he gives us many interesting pointers towards finding out who we might be - at all kinds of levels.--Peter Davies"Amazon" (10/27/2013)

Who on Earth are You? is a book that asks a seemingly simple question which you have probably never asked yourself before... This book really got me thinking on a deeper level about myself than I have before. It helped me to understand myself in ways I never really thought of until I read this book. I enjoyed reading it and will definitely be sharing it with others. I highly recommend it.--Sheri Newton"Sheri's World" (12/15/2013)

A wonderful and thoughtful guide, which takes the reader through all the many ways there are of answering the question "Who am I?" from the basic to the transcendental. It explores philosophical and scientific views of human nature; underlines the way in which we shape our identities in response to technology; and asks who we will become in the future.--Martin Gill"Yoga Magazine" (02/05/2014)
