This new edition has been extensively revised andupdated to take account of more recent theoretical developments,and a new chapter has been added on individualization which focuseson how the self becomes an agent of do-it-yourself autobiographical reconstruction in an age of intensiveglobalization. Concepts of the Self remains the most lively, lucid andcompelling introduction to contemporary controversies over the selfand self-identity in the social sciences and humanities.
