coverTalking Heads : Language, Metalanguage, and the Semiotics of Subjectivity by Benjamin Lee.

Talking Heads synthesizes the views and works of a breathtaking range of the most influential modern theorists of the humanities and social sciences, including Austin, Searle, Derrida, Jakobson, Bakhtin, Wittgenstein, Peirce, Frege, Kripke, Donnellan, Putnam, Saussure, and Whorf. After illuminating these many strands of thought, Lee moves beyond disciplinary biases and re-embeds within the context of the public sphere the questions of subjectivity and language raised by these theorists. In his examination of how subjectivity relates not just to grammatical patterns but also to the specific social institutions in which these patterns develop and are sustained, Lee discusses such topics as the concept of public opinion and the emergence of Western nation-states...

Narrative Psychology: Internet and Resources

Maintained by Vincent W. Hevern, SJ, Psychology Department, LeMoyne College, Syracuse, NY.  This page focuses upon narrative perspectives in psychology and allied disciplines and provides an interdisciplinary guide to bibliographical and Internet resources concerned with "the storied nature of human conduct" (Sarbin, 1986) broadly conceived. Narrative in psychology itself has developed particularly notable links with the emergent discipline of cultural psychology (Bruner, 1990). This guide recognizes the interdependence among both the topics examined and resources cited herein for narrative and cultural psychology. Finally, this page archives materials from the course, PSY 444 Narrative Psychology, taught at LeMoyne College and suggests other pedagogical materials concerned with the study of narrative.
Keywords: narrative, discourse analysis, storytelling, cultural and cross-cultural psychology, qualitative research, social constructivism, constructionism, postmodernism, critical realism, pedagogy...


International Society for Self and Identity: An Interdisciplinary Association of Social and Behavioral Scientists

University of Warwick.  The International Society for Self and Identity is a scholarly association dedicated to promoting the scientific study of the human self. Among the members of the animal kingdom, human beings are uniquely able to take themselves as the object of their own thoughts -- to think consciously about themselves, form images and concepts of what they are like, evaluate their characteristics and capabilities, plan deliberately for the  future, worry about how they are being perceived by other people, and direct their own behavior in line with personal standards. Because this ability to self-reflect has important implications for understanding human behavior, the self has emerged as a central focus of theory and research in many domains of social and behavioral science.


Joint Philosophy and Psychology Project on Consciousness and Self Consciousness

The problem of explaining consciousness and self consciousness is the central problem that any account of the relation between the brain and the mind must address. In recent years there have been a great number of books in the sciences and in philosophy claiming to have solved the mystery of consciousness and self consciousness by giving them a naturalistic explanation, and an equal number of books and articles, mainly by philosophers, claiming that such solutions are a priori impossible, that consciousness and self consciousness necessarily elude naturalistic explanation. The project has been set up in the belief that general global claims can only get us so far. What is needed for genuine understanding of the nature of consciousness and self consciousness is detailed work on issues that can actually serve to integrate work in philosophy on  the subjective phenomenological and epistemological aspects of consciousness and self consciousness, with experimental and theoretical work on information processing models of the working of the brain. 


The Consciousness in the Natural World Project

University of Stirling. The Consciousness in the Natural World project is based in the Philosophy Department at the University of Stirling. It aims to bring together philosophers from the Scottish Universities and beyond to allow concerted and collective progress to be made on one of the central problems in the philosophy of mind - the problem of explaining the place of conscious psychological life within the natural world.

The central thought behind the project is that current work on this problem has reached a deadlock because philosophers have approached it in terms that are too broad and ill-defined, instead of confining themselves to clearly defined, circumscribed and tractable problems. The project sets out to identify and make progress upon a series of sub-problems whose resolution is an essential preliminary to tackling the overarching problem of explaining the place of conscious psychological life within the natural world.
