A tour de force of scholarship and major contribution to the history of thought concerning the nature of personal identity, Internarrative Identity: Placing the Self asks how identity is created and examines the history of conceptions of the self, from Aristotle to Postmodernism, to find the answers. Ultimately, Maan discovers that the human capacity for self-creation exists in what have previously been problematic areas of experienceconflict, marginalization, disruption, exclusion, subversion, deviation and contradiction.
