It is a collection of papers presented at a series of lectures given during the 1994-96 meetings of the Psychology Section of the New York Academy of Sciences. Subjects vary from the field of comparative behaviour (in particular the issue of animal self-recognition as demonstrated by the mark test), narrative approaches to the self, and social and cultural influences on the development of the self-concept. The text demonstrates how different fields of psychology approach a common topic. Contributing psychologists include: Susan Andersen- Mahzarin R. Banaji- Jerome Bruner- Gordon Gallup- John Kihlstrom- Stanley Klein- Michael Lewis- Ulrich Neisser- Katherine Nelson- and Howard Rachlin.
