It is remarkable that Shaun Gallagher has managed to dish up such a
satisfying work in The Oxford Handbook of the Self ... [He] has
assembled an outstanding array of articles to understand how
contemporary research programs in diverse fields converge on the
self to address the perennial problem of the nature of our being.
The Oxford Handbook of the Self is an excellent, interdisciplinary
resource for teaching and research. * John P. Lizza, Notre Dame
