The Self and its Shadows by Stephen Mulhall download in ePub, pdf, iPad
It is simply impossible to capture or convey the full complexities treated in the various chapters or their individual styles of approach in a short review. Whether Mulhall succeeded will surely depend on how the book affects you.
Coetzee and David Foster Wallace are also prominent. The fictionalized characterization of both fictional and real people is at its height in the four chapters devoted to exploring Sartrean themes in Sartrean scenes. Mulhall argues that this choice and the details of the case make a difference to how we understand Wittgenstein's remarks about names and simples. Modern smartphones and computers can read files of any format. When you are not yourself.
It might seem that we are meant to conclude that selves are not things. For example, fictionalized versions of Sartre and Freud are brought into direct contact with Joseph K, and other fictionalized persons, from Kafka's The Trial.
That is, we are doing the same thing as Google, only within the framework of one subject. The book treats us to many other meta-fictional adventures.
Sartre's insistence that, at least when it comes to us, existence precedes essence is the locus classicus of the idea that selves are not objects. It offends against the deeply held and fiercely voiced intuitions of many philosophers. This book provides an existence proof, if anything does, that this kind of dividing up is too easy.
