Reviews

"...promises to establish [itself] as a key reference text, an invaluable aid for teachers as much as students in the fields of philosophy, social and political sciences, literary and cultural studies." The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory" Vol.14, 2006 "Self and Subjectivity is a superb reader. Kim Atkins's gem-like introductions to each reading, together with the generosity and diversity of her selections, will make this an invaluable text for teachers across a range of disciplines." J. M. Bernstein, New School for Social Research "Atkins's imaginative selection of texts from both analytic and continental thinkers -along with cogent samples of feminist, psychoanalytic, and postmodern theories of selfhood - places this work at the cutting edge of contemporary scholarship." Richard Kearney, Boston College "The extracts are wide-ranging and well-chosen; and Atkins's commentaries on her selections are informative, clear, and concise. This will be an extremely useful collection for both students and teachers of philosophy." Christopher Cordner, University of Melbourne
