Contemporary research in personality, social psychology, and sociology has renewed an interest in the qself.q This volume argues that the qselfq may consist of multiple qselvesq any of which may interact with each other in a dialogical fashion. The qselfq is presented as a non-unitary embodiment that transcends the limits of individualism and rationalism. Beginning with a philosophic discussion of the qself, q this volume discusses the decentralization of the qselfq in narrative psychology, the retreat of the omniscient narrator in literary sciences, the genesis of self-knowledge in children, and the concept of modern society as a multiplicity of collective voices.aquot; This volume argues that the aquot;selfaquot; may consist of multiple aquot;selvesaquot; any of which may interact with each other in a dialogical fashion.
