This is the paperbound edition of a 2005 book. Presented here are 14 essays by Velleman (philosophy, New York U.; formerly, for a couple decades, U. of Michigan). Two--an introduction to themes and a brief introudction to Kantian ethics--are published here for the first time; the others were published between 1996 and 2004 in books and in periodicals such as The Philosophic Review and Philosophical Perspectives. Among the topics: the genesis of shame, love, conscience, the self as narrator, and from self psychology to moral philosophy, among other topics of interest to philsophers, psychologists, and others who theorize about the self.
