Self, Person, World

Interplay of Conscious and Unconscious in Human Life
Donald McIntosh

Self, Person, World presents a synoptic survey of human life in its personal, social, and mythic dimensions, drawing on sources such as Freud, Weber, Husserl, and recent work in cognitive and developmental psychology. Donald McIntosh's premise is that no major aspect of human life can be understood adequately except in the context of the whole. His central theme is the pervasive intermingling and interaction between conscious and unconscious levels of thought and awareness.

"McIntosh provides a timely and important corrective to the understanding of the person generated by writers who have been caught up in the 'linguistic turn' in philosophy." --Journal of Phenomenological Psychology
