Review quote

"Models of the Self introduces the recent developments in a growing field of research, that of the embodiment of the self. Self-consciousness is probably the most fascinating aspect of this problem. The truly multidisciplinary approach to self-consciousness, from its development in infancy, to its disorders in neurological as well as psychiatric conditions, offers a real challenge to philosophers who are interested in such broad issues as the foundations of agency or the unity of the self. The book is fully edited, which is a rare feature in multi-authored works. The philosophical thread runs through the chapters, even those which deal with psychological or biological questions. No doubt this book will be widely read by philosophers, but also by researchers in neuroscience, psychology or cognitive science at large."

--Marc Jeannerod, Directeur, Institut des Sciences Cognitives, Lyon, France; co-editor, The Neuropsychology of Mental Imagery
