What does it mean for human being to be a self? Is “self” a metaphysical heritage deeply embedded in our Cartesian way of seeing ourselves? Is it a mere social construct? A result of our narratives? An Eurocentric invention with a limited historical relevance? And if a self exists at least as a possibility of our conscious life, what role does it exactly play in our existence? <br>
<br>
In order to better assess the equivocations behind the “self”, we will first investigate the origins of such a concept in Modern philosophy (Descartes) and then address various forms of criticism towards the conception of ego considered as self-enclosed, self-transparent and self-sufficient fundament of our being. These criticisms will be considered mostly from the perspective of phenomenological authors such as Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty and Patocka as well as from the perspective of narrative identity. <br>
<br>
Our investigation will mostly focus on the relation between self and other. We will ask to what extant does selfhood involve interpersonal relations, how is it embedded in a social environment. It will be argued that one cannot be a self on one´s own, but only as a part of intersubjective relations of mutual recognition.

Attention: Thursday October 5, the class is cancelled due to other work duties; we will meet for the first time on Thursday, October 12.
