Five researchers from the Center for Subjectivity Research introduce various approaches to the center's current primary focus area: The self.
Does the self exist? Is it real or just an illusion? What is the relation between self and consciousness? What is the relation between self and others? Can one be a self alone or only with others? What is the relation between the self and our emotional life? Between the self and the values we endorse? And what can we learn about the self by studying different kinds of self disorders? The working hypothesis of the center is that in order to understand what it means to perceive, experience, act, remember, and feel, you have to include the self.
