Summary

This book is a theory-guided attempt to give an in-depth analysis of some of the pressing problems of our time as they emerge at the interface of self and society. I believe we are in need of rethinking the relationship between self, other, and the natural environment as a response to the limitations of the Western self-ideal. In order to realize this, I will present Dialogical Self Theory (DST) as a bridging theory at the interface of social sciences and philosophy. It is my purpose to present this theory as providing a broad picture view of some problem areas that place us in a field of tension between liberation and imprisonment.
