Overview

Recovering the Self seeks to establish a framework to rethink the relation between self and society, identities and power. Through exploring the works of Marx, Weber, and Durkheim he shows the hidden complexities of a modernity too often identified with a unified vision of the rational self. Reinstating the body and emotional life into the discussion, Seidler sets new terms for respect and equality by showing ways the self is undermined in its sense of self-worth and adequacy through the working of relationships of power and subordination.
