About this product
- DescriptionEssays on the Modern Identity selectively represents the developing understanding of the modern self from the time of Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) to the present. This volume contextualizes the late-twentieth-century crisis of the self by exploring the relationships between modern and postmodern conceptions of the human identity. Featuring exemplary analyses of selected texts, paintings, and prints, this collection of essays is offered as a contribution to the ongoing, necessarily interdisciplinary discussion of the place of modern identity in a postmodern world.
